http://www.privateofficer.com/ Police say a man must have had some inside information when he pulled off a robbery of a security guard in broad daylight.
Police said that a man flagged down a security officer at the Fair Grounds asking where “human resource” could be found. Police say the man then pulled a gun, told the security guard to open the trunk, took a suitcase, and fled.

Fair Grounds spokesman Lenny Vangilder says neither the security guard nor the woman was hurt.
Police believe that the man must have known that there was cash inside the trunk of the vehicle and that it was in a suitcase but are not saying anything else.

Two arrested after off-duty security hears confession http://www.privateofficer.com
Police arrested two teens on charges of receiving stolen property after a Macy’s security officer waiting for a bus allegedly overheard them boast about what they had done.
The security officer called police, who went to the bus stop at South Shore Plaza on Wednesday and arrested Maurice Thomas, 17, of Dorchester and a 16-year old Brockton girl.
The two teens were among a group of youths talking about numerous items they had just stolen from several stores at the mall, police said.
The six youths, who ranged in age from 15 to 17, then removed the stolen merchandise from several bags and divided it, police said.
Officers questioned the youths and determined that most of the merchandise, over $700 worth, came from the Hollister store. Hollister employees confirmed that Thomas, 17, and the Brockton girl were in the store.
Police said the Brockton girl had been in a fitting room where discarded security tags were found.
Police also recovered more than $300 in merchandise stolen from Victoria’s Secret, Pacific Sun and Forever 21.
