Moldy Jail

The presence of toxic mold has forced the relocation of about 80 inmates from the Santa Rosa County Jail in Milton.

Deputies in the Panhandle county east of Pensacola have transferred 32 female inmates to Okaloosa County Jail in Crestview, and about 50 male inmates went to the neighboring state prison on East Milton Road.

The mold appeared in tests conducted December 7.

It could be summer before the jail reopens.
