Police are investigating a burglary that was discovered Thursday at the Women’s Community Correctional Center.

Officers responded to the prison at 42-477 Kalanianaole Highway and opened a burglary case, a police spokeswoman said.

Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Toni Schwartz said the guards noticed the fence had been cut while making their rounds at about 10:30 a.m.

She said the culprit or culprits broke a lock on a metal maintenance shed to take items from inside. She declined to say what was lost.

Schwartz said inmates are housed in a separate area and at no time was the public at risk.
