Although this story comes to us from Denver, the actions of the security guard still apply in California. Many guards work at large retail stores just like this guard does at Home Depot. In this story, the suspect voluntarily showed the guard his ID guard. A guard can’t force anyone to show an ID at Home Depot. Once the guard recognized the ID as fake, he promptly called the police. The guard knew that once identifying a security concern, it was the duty of the police to continue the investigation. The guard did not try to restrain the suspect or search the suspect or the suspect’s car as the guard doesn’t have any legal right to perform searches. Good job by the guard for being professional and following correct procedures.
