PINK HILL, N.C. — Sheriff’s deputies evacuated homes on a residential street in a North Carolina town after one woman was sickened by a pink powdery substance she received in the mail.

The Free Press of Kinston reported authorities shut down a street Tuesday in Pink Hill, about 90 miles southeast of Raleigh. Residents living near the sickened woman’s mobile home were evacuated briefly as a precaution.

Lenoir County officials say the woman was sent to the hospital. Her condition was not known.

Authorities say they haven’t identified the substance. Officials from the State Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and members of the National Guard were called to assist.

BUTNER, N.C. — Bernard Madoff has left his North Carolina prison’s hospital unit and returned to his cell.

The 71-year-old disgraced financier had been transferred to a prison hospital on Dec. 18. Bureau of Prisons spokeswoman Denise Simmons said Wednesday he was transferred back to the medium security section of the complex Monday. She declined to discuss Madoff’s health.

Madoff’s lawyer has said that Madoff had dizziness and high blood pressure. Prisons officials have said he was not assaulted.

Madoff is serving a 150-year sentence after pleading guilty to fraud and admitting to cheating thousands of investors out of billions of dollars.
