SALEM, Ore. -- Authorities in Oregon are investigating suspicious packages sent to government buildings around the state.

Oregon State Police said Monday that some of the packages contained an unknown substance. Police did not say how many packages were received or which government buildings received them. Hazardous materials teams and investigators have responded to the scenes.

The East Oregonian in Pendleton reported ( http://bit.ly/1D7aELX ) that Grant County Sheriff Glenn Palmer was taken to a hospital for treatment and observation Monday afternoon after opening an envelope addressed to him that contained white powder. The newspaper said Palmer developed a physical reaction.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Department in southwest Oregon was among the agencies receiving the mailings. The Mail Tribune in Medford reported ( http://bit.ly/1h1c1lD ) that the department's rural office in White City discovered a package and that the department's main building was evacuated for about three hours.
