DENVER - A Jewish community center in Colorado was evacuated on Monday after a worker opened an envelope containing a threatening message along with white powder that was later deemed to be harmless, police said.

The letter was sent to the Boulder Jewish Community Center, said Commander Heidi Prentup, spokeswoman for the Boulder County Sheriff's Office. The note read: "your (sic) have enemies," she said.

"When deputies arrived on scene they evacuated the building, quarantined the office, the people who were in contact with the envelope, and the envelope itself," Prentup said.
