Why Security Guard Didn’t fire On Thief
It has now emerged that the guard didn’t know anything about the robbery, as he was on the toilet at the time – an excuse Simon is seemingly unimpressed with, as The Sun has claimed he will hand him his P45.
The Mirror reported that it was another security guard, M’batonha Mendes, who ended up chasing the robber down the street, while he was working on another job. When he alerted Simon’s security team, M’batonha was surprised to learn they had no idea about the break-in.
“I met security and asked if he noticed anything out of the ordinary. He said he’d been to the toilet,” he said. “I told him what had happened. He was shocked and hadn’t a clue the house had been burgled.” Speaking about how he caught the burglar, Mendes said: “I noticed that as he was walking, something dropped behind him. I got out of the car and picked it up. It was a passport with Simon Cowell’s picture.
