Authorities say Matthue Koch was charged with two degrees of obstruction of governmental operations: a second-degree count connected to a cell phone, and a fourth-degree count related to cigarettes.

The ARAMARK employee became the focus of an investigation after authorities determined that inmates were exchanging cash for electronic devices and other forbidden items.

County Prosecutor Ted Housel says that an undercover detective arranged for Koch to deliver a cell phone and cigarettes to an inmate for $100 cash. Koch was arrested on his arrival.

He was released to await a court appearance.

Members of the Atlantic County Internal Investigations and Official Corruption units took roles in the probe.
