Millhaven Institution in lockdown over missing cereal containers
Normal Millhaven operations to resume 'as soon as it is considered safe': Correctional Service Canada
The search for missing plastic containers used to store food has forced a maximum-security prison near Kingston, Ont., into lockdown.
"Normal operations will resume as soon as it is considered safe to do so."
The lockdown was ordered at Millhaven — the prison built to replace Kingston Penitentiary — on Sunday at about 7 a.m. ET.
The missing containers are used to store food items such as cereal, said Vicki Willis, an assistant warden at Millhaven.
Regularly scheduled visits may be affected by the lockdown and visitors are asked to call the institution directly before travelling there.
