Ludlow Lockdown

posted by John Baibak - 

A portion of the Hampden County Jail  in Ludlow is on lockdown.  

Authorities say an anonymous tip was called  in about a contraband that was snuck into the residential unit.  

The  unit has been on lockdown for the past several days as security teams  and K-9s sweep the area.  

Inmates are being kept in their cells for the  majority of the day.  

It's unclear what type of contraband is being  searched for.

Officials aren't saying how long the lock down will go on for.
