Security Guard Confesses to Stealing Firearm and Ammunition from Employer

A security guard employed with Professional Guard Service (PGS) has been arrested and is set to face charges after confessing to the theft of a .38 revolver and five rounds of .38 ammunition, the property of his employer. The arrest follows a detailed investigation into the missing firearm.

Olton Mars, a 38-year-old driver at PGS, reported the incident, stating that he signed for eight .38 revolvers and two shotguns from Sabrina Henry, a 26-year-old Duty Officer with PGS, at approximately 07:00 hrs on November 24, 2023. Mars asserted that after signing for the firearms, he placed them under the mat in the front passenger seat of the vehicle he was driving.

While carrying out his duties, Mars discovered the missing firearm and ammunition after dropping off Horace Thomside, a 23-year-old security guard, at his worksite in Charlestown. Mars immediately informed Sabrina Henry, and despite efforts to locate the missing items at various worksites, they could not be found.

Upon contacting the police on November 25, 2023, Mars and Thomside were arrested. During the investigation, Thomside, under caution, admitted to stealing the firearm and concealing it under his bed at his residence on Adelaide Street, Charlestown. The police, accompanied by Thomside, conducted a search at his home, where the stolen .38 revolver and five rounds of ammunition were discovered wrapped in a sock under his bed.

Horace Thomside is slated to face charges related to the theft, and the swift resolution of the case highlights the collaboration between the employer, law enforcement, and a vigilant colleague in apprehending the perpetrator. The incident underscores the importance of stringent security measures and the commitment to maintaining the integrity of firearm handling within security services.
