DELAND, Fla. - DeLand police initially told WFTV that George Zimmerman was working as a security guard at Pompano Pat's in DeLand, but a report stated that the owner of the business had asked Zimmerman to guard the store due to a recent burglary.
Pompano Pat's is a locally-owned store on South Woodland Boulevard that sells firearms, ammunition and motorcycles.
The Department of Agriculture said Zimmerman is not a licensed security guard, and the management of Pompano Pat's said he is not an official employee.
Last year, Zimmerman was cleared of all charges in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
Zimmerman wasn't arrested for 44 days after the Feb. 26, 2012, shooting as police in Sanford insisted that Florida's Stand Your Ground law on self-defense prohibited them from bringing charges. Florida gives people wide latitude to use deadly force if they fear death or bodily harm.
