    Actually, it seems all 3 have copped to the thefts and are cooperating fully with the authorities. A 4th guard was arrested but was let go without charges. There may still be more people charged pending the outcome of the investigation.

    The mall needs to seriously look at upgrading their camera system. These guards were able to run amok even afters numerous after hours thefts from stores had been reported.

    Rosedale security guards charged in Mall theft
    BY SHANNON PRATHER
    Pioneer Press
    Article Last Updated: 06/14/2007 04:17:29 PM CDT

    Three Rosedale mall security guards who prosecutors allege padded their lifestyles by stealing more than $20,000 in cash and merchandise from stores they were paid to protect were slapped with criminal charges today.

    Paul Thomas Fransen, 20, Corey Lewis Woodhams, 24, and Ryan Mitchell Schwerin, 20, were each charged with a variety of burglary and theft counts in Ramsey County District Court.

    They trio stole dozens of household and clothing items, which police found in their apartments. They took picture frames and a pearl-handled knife from Things Remembered; clothing from Abercrombie & Fitch, cell phones from the Verizon store, perfumes and lotions from Bath & Body Works, kitchen appliances from Williams-Sonoma, according to court documents.

    They also stole thousands of dollars of cash from store registers, the criminal complaint alleges.

    Fransen told police he stole out of boredom, from being influenced by bad friends and out of a desire to have "nice stuff."

    They'll make their first court appearance on July 20.

    All IPC employees wear uniforms marked PUBLIC SAFETY, too. They do not use the term security. Another thing the state ignores.

    Granted, we are only hearing one side of the story, that of the ex-security officer. But the Robbinsdale Police Officer's account dosen't add up. It just so happens he lives in Coon Rapids. He was off duty in his own vehicle. Not on some secret squirrel mission as the Robbinsdale Chief has said.
    They have said that the officer was close to his house. But the reports have all said that he was on duty at the time. Just how far away are Robbinsdale and Coon Rapids? I would guess 15-20 minutes? I don't even think they are in the same county. The whole thing doesn't really add up yet. The Chief sure jumped in right away to defend his officer for just doing his job.

    If the facts bear out that his officer was involved in a road rage incident and pulled a gun on a guy and his family, the chief is going to have to eat a little crow.

    I hate to bring age and maturity into the discussion, but the cop is just 27. I have met plenty of young cops that have huge egos and think that they are 10 foot tall and bulletproof. I am not saying that this is the case in this instance. But, it is something that entered my mind.

    The constant lack of proper sceening, training and oversight is a major source of the problems we have in our industry and why our overall immage in the eye of the public and officials alike is extremely poor. But these things will never change so long as security officers across the board do not stand up and demand better.

    Every day s/o's work in our industry who clearly have no business doing so but are permitted because employers and clients endorce the "warm body" syndrome for cosmetic purposes, financial profiteering agendas and lowering insurance rates. This is not what security is suppose to be about but it is because private employers are permitted to get away with not properly screening, training and regulating their s/o's in the first place, and the good s/o's suffer in the end.

    I do not believe enough s/o's take our industry, our profession and our duties seriously enough; many profess to know the law but do not; many profess to be something they are not and way too many simply treat the job as just a paycheck rather than having any actual genuine care about what they do; what their badge stands for and the effects their jobs have on others.

    These are not problems that cannot be fixed, to the contrary. But the road to repair begins first with reshaping our belief systems; standing up for what is right, and not settling for second best in the screening, training and oversight processes.

    Sadly enough the lack of supervision seems pretty common. I carry a gps enabled cell phone. As long as it shows me moving once in while I must be working. I could put it in a elevator and walk off the job and they'd never know.

    Anyone know if these guys had anything in their background to where they should not have been hired?

    Man Who Shot Robbinsdale Police Officer Out of Jail

    I agree that the officer involved shooting may very well end up being justified. The fact that the cop was in street clothes and a Ford Taurus lends credence to the guy saying that he had no idea he was shooting a cop. The cop is working undercover and they have still not released his name.

    But, the guy had his wife and two kids in the car and had to lean across his wife to shoot at the cop still sitting in his car. You have to wonder if he could have just driven away.

    If the cop had a gun pointed at him as he said, why didn't the officer return fire?

    At the end of the day, road rage doesn't pay for anyone, especially when you have your family in the car or you're undercover.
