A federal indictment charging an Albertville woman with mailing two hoax anthrax letters to the Social Security Administration office in Albertville in 2009 was unsealed Tuesday following her arrest, according to U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance and Frank Dyer, postal inspector/domicile coordinator, U.S. Postal Inspection Service.

A federal grand jury on Feb. 2 indicted Michell Holladay Ryder, 43, on two counts of mailing a letter containing a powdery substance and a note to someone at the Albertville Social Security office.
