Police say someone mailed fecal matter to the home of a Journal News editor after the paper published the names and addresses of Rockland and Westchester county handgun owners.
White Plains police Commissioner David Chong says a suspicious package that brought out the Westchester County bomb squad Thursday turned out to contain "non-toxic fecal matter."
The newspaper identified the package's recipient as CynDee Royle, the paper's editor and vice president/news.
Last month, The Journal News published on its website a clickable map identifying Westchester and Rockland county residents with handgun permits.
That drew heavy criticism from gun owners nationwide. Some posted online the addresses of Journal News staffers. At least five suspicious packages have been sent to the paper or staffers.
