Power found with woman's bill lead to her arrest

Suspicious powder enclosed with a water bill payment led to the arrest of a Madison woman.

Thirty-three year-old Latosha Smith has posted $5,000 dollars bail and will appear in court in December. She is charged with unlawful hoaxes intended to cause belief that exposure to certain harmful substances has occurred.

The powder in the envelope Smith delivered to the City of Madison water department was determined to be oyster shell calcium carbonate, a vitamin supplement.
