Thieves in the Night!

Several years ago we owned a business which was a very successful one and still is. Whilst owning this business we were often called out at night by the Police or Security Guards whom we paid to look after the place.
We had security cameras around the building and inside the building, we sold many things that people wanted to steal..oh dear!
One such night the security guard phoned home about 2 or 3am in the morning for one of us to go over and join him as we had been robbed once again.
Next day, I went through the recorded tape which went for 8 hours, yes, I know it sounds boring but I used to fast forward and mainly only looked at the tapes if we had had a robbery.
So this day I found the thieves x 2, continued to play the tape and just happened to look up at the security guard and lo and behold he was stealing too!!  Yes, a security guard stole some chocolate frogs.
So what do you say about chocolate frogs, let the guard go and don't say anything, but then on the other hand it could have been diamond rings that cost more money - so the thing is I rang his boss and it went from there, he almost lost his job, he wasn't permitted to do security work anymore.  The young men were taken to court, fined and that was that.
I wonder how they would feel if they saw the video below.....

The video goes for 59 seconds, is FLV and 9.15MB....watch carefully and you will see the 2 young males, and the security guard taking the frogs out of the big plastic frogs mouth....it's a little hard to see but you will see it. Also have cut a lot out of the video, but you get the idea.

  3. Kind of sad when you can't even trust the security guard - although chocolate frogs (chocolate anything for that matter) are very tempting... :D

    1. Perhaps he did have a craving for chocolate, but he could have said, I took a couple of frogs, he's the money, but he didn't and we would have given them to him then for free.

    1. Yes, stealing is stealing and that's that!
      Always tapes go through and it was tiresome but had to be done, for we always caught someone of camera, so that makes you feel good :) to catch a thief.
      Yes, we are fine thanks..

  6. That must be so annoying. How come the security guard didn't catch/stop the thieves. Then he takes goods as well. He didn't deserve that job.

    1. The security alarm worked in such a way it let the security firm know immediately the premises was broken into. Oh yes, he had a cheek.
