Pascale Ferrier, of Quebec, was arrested at a border crossing in Buffalo, New York, on Sunday. Officials say she was carrying a gun. She has pleaded not guilty to making threats against the president. The letter she allegedly sent last week was discovered before it reached the White House.
The letter, which the FBI says had her fingerprints on it, referred to the poisoned note as "a special gift", adding: "If it doesn't work, I'll find better recipe for another poison, or I might use my gun when I'll be able to come." The suspect may have also sent ricin to five addresses in Texas, including a jail and a sheriff's office, according to the court documents.
