A lockdown has now ended at the Grand Valley Institution for Women in Kitchener.

A release from Correctional Service Canada said it was issued earlier this week so a thorough search could be conducted in the medium-security unit.

Unauthorized items including drugs, and drug and tattoo paraphernalia, were seized.

Normal operations, including scheduled visits, have now resumed.
