Security guards accused of stealing from Mo. school
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Two security guards are facing charges and out of work after allegedly stealing laptop computers, cell phones and money from a St. Louis school.
Authorities say 23-year-old Stephon Jackson and 20-year-old Christopher Johnson are charged with burglary and stealing. The private security company they worked for, Secure VIP, says both have been fired.
Police say the men were sent into Fanning Middle School on Dec. 17, a Saturday, after an alarm went off. Their company was hired to respond to alarms at St. Louis schools.
While inside, the men allegedly broke into the principal's office and a storage room. Eight laptop computers were among the items taken.
The school district has severed ties with Secure VIP.
The suspects did not have listed attorneys.
