I am a security guard at one of the retail stores in my home town. I was asked by my super if I wanted to go to another site to make some more hrs so I said yes. This job is a armed site and I was concerned about this but I was also was concerned about making more money also. This was a mistake on my part. About 30 minutes into my shift ,I was alerted by my site manager that a person was shop lifting but before I could locate the suspect the manager located him and jerked his jacket open and merchandise hit the floor. I am not certified to work at this store as a armed guard so I did not have a weapon. All I could do is see what the next move of the shoplifter was. He could of had a gun under his jacket but I was lucky that he didn't. I later contacted my super and told him the story and I told him I did not want to work at this site again until I was certified to be armed. He agreed! Please don,t put yourself in this position like I did.
Glad it turned out ok, probably better to not work there again 'til cert. to be armed, good idea.
