Maximum security prison near Kingston on lockdown

Millhaven Institution, a maximum security prison in Bath (about 25 kilometres west of Kingston), is on lockdown.

In a news release sent out Monday morning, Correctional Service Canada says the lockdown was put in place around 7 a.m. Sunday so staff members could conduct a search to ensure the safety and security of the institution, its staff and inmates.

Normal operations will resume as soon as it's considered safe to do so.
