Does an Alleged Child Sex Predator Still Work for a Security Company? No Comment from Officials
Last updated 4/29/2022 at 3:48am
TAMPA Fla. – It's been over a week since we joined Florida Predator Prevention (FPP) on their quest to expose a suspected child sexual predator and we still have no answers from the security agency he works for.
On April 13th, R News met with a representative of FPP at a Walmart in Tampa, Florida, where we hoped to confront a subject who was having a sexually explicit conversation with, who he thought was a 15-year-old girl. The 28-year-old subject, "Chance," did show up andTHIS VIDEO SHOWS exactly what happened.
Immediately after the confrontation, R News began investigating the subject, whose real name we still have not confirmed.
To eliminate the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office as his place of employment, we spoke to Public Information Officer, Sgt. Jessica Mackesy who said, "I can confirm he is not one of our employees and is employed with Allied Universal (formerly G4S)."
Allied Universal is the largest security solutions company, with over 800,000 employees worldwide. In 2021, Allied acquired the British owned G4S for $5.1 billion.
R News attempted to contact Allied's public relations departments in California, the United Kingdom, and in Florida's local offices, without a single reply. Today, R News visited the Tampa office and asked to speak with the local manager, but he declined to comment. I then contacted the Regional Senior Vice President Joseph Lo Bianco on his cellphone. He asked me to text him the information and said, "I will pass it along." He also declined to comment any further.
Despite having a potential child sexual predator working for their agency, Allied Universal did not seem to have any interest in addressing the issue with R News.
To this day it is unknown if "Chance" is still employed with Allied or if there is an investigation into his illicit activities.

Less than an hour after publishing this article, the Vice President of Communications contacted R News and provided the following statement:
"Hi Tom. Thank you for reaching out on this matter. Allied Universal takes immediate action if we find out any member of our team is involved in illegal activity. However, we cannot release information about former or current employees to the public. I can tell you that the individual in the image/video is not an Allied Universal employee. Please contact the Pinellas County Sheriff Department for updates on this matter, as well as information available to the public."
We will continue the investigation.
