White Plains, NY - Police say someone mailed fecal matter to the home of an editor for a New York newspaper that has published the names and addresses of handgun owners.

White Plains police Commissioner David Chong says a suspicious package that brought out the Westchester County bomb squad Thursday turned out to contain “non-toxic fecal matter.”

He said Friday the package was sent to a Journal News employee. The newspaper identified her as CynDee Royle, who’s editor and vice president/news.

Last month, The Journal News published on its website a clickable map identifying Westchester and Rockland county residents with handgun permits.

That drew heavy criticism from gun owners nationwide. Some posted online the addresses of Journal News staffers. At least five suspicious packages have been sent to the paper or staffers.
