Drugs, Guns, and security firms, who’d have thought they mixed?

By johnboy - 2 August 2005 7

The Canberra Times has an interesting story for those who have long suspected that security firms might be involved in organised crime.

The ACT Magistrates Court heard police had seized what they believed to be more than 140 tablets or pills suspected of containing MDMA (or ecstasy) from the owner of MIL Security, Michael Ian Lawrence, 42, of Chifley.

In a later search of Lawrence’s residence, police say they found additional tablets and powder, and a Jennings J-22 pistol.

In a subsequent search of Lawrence’s office in his business premises, they say they uncovered a Glock semi-automatic pistol, ammunition and a broken tablet.

Amazingly for all concerned Magistrate Lalor has refused bail.

The majority of security personnel may not be criminals. However, the great majority of criminals are security personnel. Think about it!

Did anyone notice the S! security ads on telly the day after this was in the paper?

‘Mick was always a kind and generous man above and beyond others in all my business and personal dealings with him.’

Kind and generous in his dealings with anyone who was buying drugs from him. Got no time for drug dealers. What else was he into under the guise of a security company?

I would be betting that every business that was under the cover of MIL that was burgled would be second guessing who did it.

I am not saying that every person who works/worked for MIL is dodgy but he could certainly hire people who would do ‘work’ for him.

When I completed the Security Officer’s course in NSW,I had to get a check done by the coppers before the license could be issued.

Sadly, half the graduating class could not complete this final requirement as there were outstanding warrants out for them.

This posting has prompted me to check my front window, and sure enough there’s an MIL sticker there. I’d keep it on, if I thought keeps burglars away. On the other hand, I don’t want every ecstasy-head or Glock enthusiast knocking on my door.

The story – to me is a little sad. Obviously Mick was never the brightest spark in the world and has probably had dealings with illicit drugs since his early days as a bodybuilder.

Whilst I was never great mates with him, Mick was always a kind and generous man above and beyond others in all my business and personal dealings with him.

The sad thing is it is his beautiful little girl and lovely ex wife that will suffer the legacy of his stupidity.

I think this mob are also involved in night club security. How convenient.
