Investigators quarantined the area. The Vineland Fire Department, the Office of Emergency Management and the hazmat teams from Gloucester County and Cape May Counties responded and determined the powder did not contain anthrax.

The man was taken to Inspira Medical Center Vineland and was handled as a mental health crisis. Police did not release his name.

The man also was processed on unrelated charges relating to domestic violence.
