Guard caught red handed

Another security guard was caught red-handed stealing from those who relied on his protection.

Lucian Anthony, a security guard, was arrested by Klapmuts police for stealing from a film production set. Marche Media appointed the company to secure its film set on Wiesenhof Farm.

Police spokesperson Sgt Bernadine Arendse said that Anthony was arrested on Sunday 3 February and appeared in the Paarl Magistrate’s court on Tuesday 5 February. She said he was found with stolen electrical equipment to the value of R32 500.

Louis du Preez, a freelance production manager for the film, said they realised equipment was missing from inside the house they stored it in.

“We went to speak to the security guard who was working the night shift and he confessed that it was him,” said Du Preez. Police then arrested Anthony.

Sieghard Kulenkampff, the owner of Wiesenhof Farm, said for this exact reason he normally does not allow security guards on his property. Kulenkampff explained he was attacked on his farm about six years ago. Originally from Namibia, he said he could hear his attackers were speaking Ovambo, a Namibian language. He said they were later caught and it was revealed they were security guards from Namibia hired by his neighbour. “You simply can’t trust security officers,” he said. Kulenkampff believes in some cases security guards are also threatened by perpetrators to turn a blind eye as they know where they live.

“Their lives are at risk and they are soft targets,” he said.

Marche Media’s liaison officer, Jaco Nothnagel, said they are grateful for the response from Klapmuts police. “We received excellent service from the police,” he said.

He declined to name the security company that employed the suspect.
