Monmouth County Sheriff spokeswoman Cynthia Scott.would not describe the nature of the hazard nor how authorities were alerted to it, saying such information would compromise internal security of the jail.

A pod in the county jail that usually holds about 66 inmates was evacuated following the report, said a spokeswoman.

On average the jail contains some 1,100 prisoners, said Brown.

Nobody fell sick or was taken to the hospital, she said. “It appears to be a false alarm,” said Scott.
