US Capitol Police investigate after powder in bag inside its headquarters tests positive for cocaine

An investigation is ongoing after a small bag with a white powdery substance that tested positive for cocaine was found on a floor at the headquarters for the U.S. Capitol Police in Washington, D.C., the law enforcement agency said in a Wednesday statement. An image released by USCP appeared to show where the small “one-inch by one-inch zip lock bag” was found, which contained a “small amount” of the white powdery substance, a statement read.

Authorities said the small “baggie” was found on the floor of a hallway located inside USCP headquarters on its second level, and an officer quickly reported it to their supervisor after it was found just before 1 p.m. on Wednesday. When the small bag, and its contents, was field tested, the test showed the substance was cocaine.
