    One of my warehouses robbed at gun point

    While visiting one of my warehouses in San Juan Puerto Rico last week, we were advised of a robbery that took place the night before. Apparently a handful of assailants showed up in the wee hours. Held the guard at gun point. They destroyed his cell phone, then stuffed him into the trunk of his car.

    They made off with multiple full tractor trailers of merchandise.

    The guard was found by employees the following morning.

    Note to self: keep spare cellphone charging in the trunk.

    Excellent idea! I never would have thought of that. It's a good use for all those old cell phones laying around. You can always call 911 or emergency services, even without a cell plan. Glad to hear the guard is ok. That's pretty brazen of the robbers.

    It's Puerto Rico. That is not terribly un-common. In fact I believe this is the second time that's happened to us.

    Nope. No carry on company premises of course. Though even if armed 1 vs 5 or 6 armed guys is pretty poor odds. Best to get in the trunk at that point.

    Puerto Rico actually has a carry process you can apply for.

    Problem solving time. Which costs more?
    1- Insurance
    2-Losses in 2 thefts
    3-Hiring and arming a couple more guards?

    We are self insured.
    Our margin on that particular product is enormous - no one is losing sleep over that.
    The head quarters is practically in Obamas pocket. Number 3 is out if the question.

    ;)

    It's much more likely that they are paying a PR firm to keep this out of the news. Luckily they have serialized product. They will be watching the second hand market for the serial numbers in question. They caught the guys last time moving product on Craigslist, or so I was told.

    Ouch. Fully understood. White Blond Blue Eyed wife just safely back from Mexico City this week. Meaning, she was running me down on the security and preventions...................................... She had a personal driver, however, he could not be armed.

    Glad your employees are safe, Sir.

    I was actually surprised how nice Mexico City was.

    It's kind of sad that in all my travels the place I have felt the most unsafe was Memphis. ;)

    Very tough situation. Glad no one was seriously hurt. Sounds like your hands are somewhat tied.

    Yeah ultimately it's up to our logistics team to secure the facility locally. I just make sure they have the technical and financial support to do so.

    Is there any thought to modifying the guard post so he can see the bad guys and have time to call for help?

    I lived in St. Thomas for 3 years. It's ridiculous how much crime there is.
