HATBORO, Pa. -

Officials are confirming a vial found at the home of a Montgomery County man did contain ricin.

Last week, 19-year-old Nicholas Helman allegedly sent a birthday card laced with the poison to a romantic rival in Bucks County.

Later Hazmat crews went to Helman's home where they say they discovered a suspicious package hidden about a block away.

Now lab tests have confirmed that package contained ricin.
