The United States Capitol Police  is investigating a roughly one-inch by one-inch zip lock bag with a small amount of a white powdery substance, which field tested positive for cocaine

Capitol Police are investigating after a one-inch ziplock bag of cocaine was found in a ‘heavily trafficked’ area a few blocks from the U.S. Capitol building.

The illicit drug was found on the second floor of the U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) headquarters on Wednesday just before 1:00 p.m. ET.

It was discovered only months after Joe Biden’s administration was plagued in scandal after a bag of white powder – that tested positive for cocaine – was found in a cubby hole at the White House. 

The Capitol police said they are investigating a ‘roughly one-inch by one-inch zip lock bag with a small amount of a white powdery substance, which field tested positive for cocaine.’

‘The hallway is on the second floor in an area that has been a staging spot for furniture and supplies,’ said the USCP in a statement. 

‘The area is heavily trafficked by various contractors and employees. It is also near offices such as Prisoner Processing, Crime Scene, Intel and Reports Processing.’

After it was found and reported, the residue was field tested and came back positive for cocaine, said the release.

‘The USCP Investigations Division has opened an investigation, which will include further testing, including DNA testing of the baggie. We will provide more information when it becomes available.’

Over the summer, cocaine was found in a phone locker in President Joe Biden’s White House. 

DailyMail.com obtained photos taken by the Secret Service which included images of the bag of white powder that was found in a cubby hole used to store personal belongings near the White House’s West Executive entrance in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.

Cocaine was found in locker No. 50 on Sunday, July 2 while the Biden family – including son Hunter – was spending the weekend away at Camp David ahead of the Fourth of July holiday.

The discovery prompted an evacuation of the West Wing and street closures surrounding the White House and then triggered an 11-day investigation once the substance was identified as the illicit drug.

Documents obtained by DailyMail.com also show the Deputy Director of the FBI Paul Abbate was involved in the investigation, which clouded the Biden administration in scandal this summer.

The Secret Service closed the investigation in less than two weeks due to a ‘lack of evidence.’

The list of suspects had been narrowed down to 500, but security footage wasn’t able to determine the owner as cameras do not face the locker area.

It is unclear if any suspects were interviewed during the short investigation.

Lockers aren’t assigned to specific personnel, a source familiar with the setup told DailyMail.com, but instead guests can choose a locker to use and then take a key.

They are used by people who are outside visitors to the West Wing, not White House or Executive Office of the President staff.

The same source also said that someone taking a tour was the likeliest culprit because anyone with any familiarity of the White House would know that there’s a bathroom steps away where the contraband could have been flushed.

Documents obtained by DailyMail.com include updates in real time, like the description that a ‘1” by 1” bag of white powdery substance was found near where pass holders put their phones when going into the [redacted].’

Another document said that the individual who found the cocaine ‘was confident it was drug related.’

Secret Service officials noted that the president was at Camp David and Vice President Kamala Harris was in Los Angeles at the time of the discovery.

‘There is no reported media coverage of this incident at the time,’ an initial Secret Service document says.

Once news reports came out about the incident, the documents show Secret Service officials having back and forths with reporters over whether the powder was cocaine.

Secret Service also had to set the record straight on where it was found, as early reports about the incident said the cocaine was discovered in the White House library, then the West Wing lobby and then finally the cubbies by the West Executive entrance.

An initial test conducted by D.C. fire’s Hazmat team came back positive for opioids and amphetamines, while the Secret Service’s first tests were inconclusive.

‘They are likely going with what they got from DC fire. I can only speak to what the Secret Service is doing and we’ve sent it in for formalized testing. Not to say that D.C. fire is incorrect, but we have a different process,’ the Secret Service’s communications chief says in an email amid the barrage of media requests.

The FBI then became involved – at the request of the Secret Service’s executive leadership, a document said – and sent the sample to a lab at Quantico.
