    I once detained a suspect on suspicion of shoplifting. When recovering the merchandise which was found tucked in his wasteband, I also found 1 oz. of marijuana right next to it. He was arrested for theft and the dope. So that’s my big "drug bust" story.

    Craig333 at least that "coke" didn't make it to the street. To the ringleaders, you were a pimple on the buttocks of their progress. I'm sure there was more where that came from. Best part of all, none of the good guys got hurt!
    Enjoy the day,
    Bill

    Not as a security, and i never actually busted anyone, but, I was involved with 700million dollar cocaine seizure when I was with CDF. It was late in the season when we got a call about a barn fire. It was pretty much a total loss (the nearest station had already closed for the season) when we arrived. While mopping up I kept seeing a lot of glassware of the labratory type. I get the engineer and he looks at it. We look around some outlying building and see some gallon jugs full of some kind of liquid.

    Well the engineer calls in "we need an investigator" and it turns out he's "busy" he'll be out in a couple days. Failing to convince dispatch its important (and this was in 1984 pre cell phone days) we reluctantly leave the scene and drive to the nearest town and place a phone call. Back at the scene its not long before the sheriff shows up.

    Theres a u-haul van at the scene. The officer opens it up and its stuffed full of cocaine. He casually mentions the property owner is a gun nut. Great.

    Long story short, a couple illegals are arrested, the property owner is arrested but they never do get the people behind the operation (the property owner may or may not have known something was going but wasn't involved other than to rent out his barn) and no one serves time due to the illegal search, and the scene not being secure.

    I'm very happy they panicked when the barn caught fire and didn't stick around.

    This implies you were arrested off the job, though.

    Forum, does anyone know if Oklahoma has a state required background screening for security personnel? I still remember when a convicted felon (armed robbery) applied at my old employer. The State of Florida completely MISSED his conviction, yet a PI background check found it. The state revoked his firearms and security license when it was forwarded to them.
    Sort of? I just recall filling out a questionare for CLEET and answering questions such as, "Have you ever been hospitalized for mental illnesses" or "Been convicted...blah blah blah?". I answered no (honestly) and well...I have my card.

    Technically, in Florida, a non-licensed security person could chase a person they're authorized to arrest under common law to the state line.

    Its only the problem of 493 that makes it illegal to abandon post. There is no abandoning post law for non-licensed personnel.

    From what I've been told, here in Minnesota you can leave your post (and people do) to arrest people. Usually its restricted to crime against person, or things that started on property.

    In Florida, of course, we all know what I'll say. Loss of license, possible criminal charges, etc for abandoning post while on duty AND for using force against someone other than to protect persons.
    Minnesota has liberal citizens arrest laws (and lots of other liberal things).
    I see it as a feature, not a flaw. (the liberal arrest laws, not the other things)

    There have been many, many times that we (CIS) and street crimes, TPD or Sheriff's Office have walked a housing community and make arrests and trespass undesirables. During these subject checks, we have found everything from marijuana, meth and crack to knives, guns and burglary tools. I have even been filmed by the crew from COPS during these " foot patrols" but I have never survived the cutting room floor (to my knowledge). As far as hanging on LEs shirt tails, I will tell you they call me on my personal cell phone when they want something to get into! Nathan, the instance you describe above has happened to me as well. You know "suitcase city" as well as I do.

    Be safe,

    Hank

    Hmmm Not sure I understand what her having drugs or any item non deadly or dangerous to others has to do with your duties to protect the store or its asserts. I do understand if you called the cops and told them that you witnessed illegal paraphernalia drop form a customers clothing and then watch until they arrive. Then it would be a he said she said and who knows what would have happened. I personally see not security related crime here but different states have different rules and am probably wrong. Won't be the first time

    Biggest Drug Bust

    I was working a detail for best buy after hurricane katrina hit.
    A white female subject wearing orange tank up and blue jean in her mid 20's walked past me. i noticed closely do fact it was very cold in the store and she wasn't wearing a bra she left her head lights on. As she walked past me and a sale person the subject got ten feet away and pulled left side of her jeans . When something feel out them try calling out to her but she keep walking. when i got half way there saw if was glass pipe with good amount of residue . I then pulled out my latex gloves and put them on. I picked up pipe and when to LP desk and called 911 the dispatcher informed me that be sometime before they can get a unit over there due to them having a high speed chase that started with a hit and run and the vehicle that was hit was on fire.
    She then asked if i could detained her until a unit could be sent. I sure i then went manger and informed them what was going one and I try take suspect down outside or remote area of the store so it wouldn't make a scene. I saw suspect in geek squad line she was only customer in line I called the geek squad cashier told him once he is done ringing up the customer to leave right away.( unknown to me a manger when got off duty state trooper she knew) I made my move to detain her informed her she was being detain for possession of drug paraphernalia and the suspicion of having narcotic on your person. As i was cuffing her she was saying i didn't know security could detain. People before I could respond to her the state trooper walked up and said yes ma'am he can and is if you don't like it I'll do it and flashed he's badge. about 20 mins late the deputies for st tammany arrived. They search her belongs found (5) crack rocks in little baggy and 2 more pipes. later i found out later the strip searched her at jail and found 10 more rocks in her panties.

    What is this "joke" concept you speak of? It is foreign to the internet.
