Threats cleared, Camden govt. workers return to work

Camden City Hall and the Camden County Prosecutor's Office were evacuated this morning after multiple threats, but have since been cleared for workers to return, according to authorities.

Police responded to the calls and a K-9 unit was called. Several charter schools went into a "shelter in place" mode, before canceling the directive.

"The building was searched by a K-9 officer and no devices were found," Laughlin wrote in an email.

He continued: "We're investigating to try to determine who was responsible for this and other calls made throughout the city this morning

The evacuations began shortly before 9:30 this morning.  Workers returned by about 10:30 a.m.
