While the man was attempting to steal the safe he was confronted by a security guard that was on duty. (The guard that confronted the would-be burglar is the guard that took the burglar's job when he was fired.) The alleged burglar brandished a handgun when he was confronted and tied up the security guard that was on duty. The old man then began to steal the safe. The safe was found abandoned and unopened near the building. The burglar was easily identified and arrested. The security officer that was tied up was uninjured and resumed working the next night. As if this story was not already ridiculous enough, the safe was found to have less than $500 in it.
