Written by

BANGOR - A Burlington woman has been indicted by a federal grand jury for allegedly mailing a threatening letter to Senator Susan Collins.

37-year-old Suzanne Muscara was indicted on Wednesday.

According to court documents, the charge arose from an investigation into a suspicious letter processed at the mail sorting facility in Hampden in October 2018.

The documents say the letter was leaking a fine white powder and it contained a threat.

The powder was tested and it did not contain any toxic substances.

If convicted, Muscara could face up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
