These men and women protect South Florida’s neighborhoods and businesses from crooks. But in recent years, hundreds of licensed security guards in South Florida have ended up on the wrong side of the law — breaking into homes, burglarizing stores and selling drugs, state records show.
Felonies and petty theft were the most common reasons why the state revoked 448 security guard licenses in the past two years in Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties, according to state licensing records.
Those now barred from security work include a Fort Lauderdale guard who allegedly broke into a Pompano Beach Blockbuster and another who reportedly stole a bike from the garage of a Sunrise home.
