EDWARDSVILLE, Kan. (AP) - Two federal corrections officers have been put on administrative leave after being accused of burglarizing cars in an eastern Kansas retirement community.

KMBC-TV (https://bit.ly/1KP5Aie ) reports a woman who lives in Edwardsville Court, in the Wyandotte County town of Edwardsville, saw someone going through cars in the parking lot early Sunday.

Loretta Moore says hers was one of four vehicles burglarized. She says the men violated the public’s trust for trying to steal from older people in a housing project.

Police say the two suspects are prison officers at Corrections Corporation of America, a private prison in Leavenworth. Investigators are looking into whether the suspects were involved in other car burglaries up the street from the retirement community.

CAA officials say the officers could face possible further action later.
