Security Guard Caught Using Kinko's Computers To View Child Porn
ORLANDO, Fla. - April 12, 2005 - A security guard for an Orange County apartment complex is under arrest after employees at an Orlando Kinko's caught him using their computers to look at child porn.
Investigators say Gerald Daniel was so involved in what he was doing, he didn't even notice deputies come in.
Channel 9 spoke with residents at the Dovetail Villas Apartments where Daniel worked as a security guard.
"I'm surprised. I didn't know there was a guy here doing that. I didn't even suspect it," said resident Gloria Rosado.
"They should definitely do background checks if they're gonna be around children, especially security guards," commented resident Anna Rosado.
Investigators say they searched the room at the Motel 6 on Lee Road where Daniel was living and found an envelope full of pictures that he had printed out during visits to Kinko's.

Orange Park Security Guard Accused Of Impersonating Officer
April 11, 2005 - A 56-year-old security guard was arrested Thursday for impersonating a police officer in Clay County.
Stephen Argo of Orange Park was charged in connection after a witness reported someone waving a badge out his car window and trying to pull over a driver.
Instead, the driver got behind him, called 911 and deputies stopped Argo.
Argo is only charged with the incident last week, although deputies said there were two similar incidents in Clay County last month.
Security guard staged own shooting in raid

But a jury did not believe his claims that it was a bogus security man who fired at him while he was delivering change to the Co-op store in Godstone Road, Kenley.
Cheyne, 43, of Davidson Road, Croydon, was jailed for three years at Croydon Crown Court on Monday.
He and co-defendant Anthony Jones, 25, of King's Walk, Sanderstead, had denied a charge of conspiring to steal more than £700,000.
Jones was acquitted. Both men were based at Securicor's Coulsdon branch, delivering and collecting money throughout Surrey.
The court heard the van was driven off while Jones was in the Co-op on January 6 2004.
He came out to find it missing. But the van was traced by a tracker system to Foxley Lane, Purley, where police discovered injured Cheyne, who claimed that a man had forced his way into the vehicle and shot him.
All the cash had disappeared and has never been found.
After Cheyne was arrested at his home last May, he told police he heard a knocking on the van and he had assumed it was Jones, but then realised he had allowed someone else in.
He said there was a struggle and he was shot in the left shoulder. He fell to the floor and blacked out and the van was driven away.
Jones denied any involvement in the hijacking or its planning.
Cheyne told police that the intruder had been wearing a Securicor helmet and uniform.
Judge Simon Pratt told Cheyne this had been a serious breach of trust involving a vast amount of money.
He said: "I accept from the ballistics evidence that you were shot from a range of one to two metres."
DCI Keith Butler from the Met's Flying Squad, which investigated the robbery, said: "Cheyne claimed he was the victim of a major armed robbery, and went to extraordinary lengths to make the attack appear genuine.
"He abused his position in a bid to steal from their company, but both Securicor and the Flying Squad were quickly able to disprove his claims."
