NEWPORT NEWS -- Hazmat crews bagged a "suspicious envelope" found at Rep. Bobby Scott's office in Newport News Thursday afternoon and turned it over to law enforcement, according to officials. 

Officials said there wasn't a letter in the envelope, which made it suspicious. 

After nearly 90 minutes, Newport News Fire spokesperson Chief Jack Carper said it turned out to be a teabag inside the envelope.

Chief Carper said the bomb squad and fire crews responded to Scott's office around 1:15. 

Three of the ten floors in the building were evacuated.
