KINGSTON, Ont. — A lockdown at a maximum security prison west of the city continued Monday as staff searched for contraband.
The Correctional Service of Canada said the lockdown and search of Millhaven Institution is necessary “to ensure the safety and security of the institution, its staff and inmates.”
The lockdown was ordered at 7 a.m. Sunday.
Normal operations at the prison will resume when it’s safe to do so, the CSC said in its release.
