Although he’s not a hired security officer, George Zimmerman has been “patrolling” outside a Volusia County gun shop after it was recently robbed, according to the store owner.
Pat Johnson told Local 6 that Zimmerman is not an employee of his DeLand store Pompano Pat’s, which sells firearms, ammunition and motorcycles.
Johnson said that Zimmerman, on his own accord, has been spotted outside the store since the robbery earlier this month. The thieves stole rifles worth up to $5,000 and two mini-bikes, according to Johnson.
Johnson added that although he knows Zimmerman, he has not hired him as a security officer.
DeLand police officers stopped to investigate why Zimmerman was parked in back of the store just after midnight on Sunday morning.
Video from the dash camera of the police cruiser shows a closer view of their exchange.
“Zimmerman informed me that he was sitting behind the business with the permission of the owner,” the officer wrote in his incident report.
“Did Pat’s hire you?” the officer asked him.
“No, no,” Zimmerman responded.
“You’re just doing this as a friend,” the officer asked Zimmerman.
“He’s a friend of mine,” he replied.
