A Highland Heights man pled guilty Thursday after sending a letter containing white powder to the Internal Revenue Service, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, and Stephen D. Anthony, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI's Cleveland Office.

John T. Buchak, 27, pled guilty to one count of threatening use of a weapon of mass destruction.

He is scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 4.

Buchak sent a letter via the U.S. Mail to the Internal Revenue Service on March 31, 2014, that contained white powder, according to the indictment.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Chelsea Rice following an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
