Owner of Pompano Pat’s in DeLand says Zimmerman not working for him
Pat Johnson told Local 10’s sister station in Orlando that Zimmerman is not an employee of his DeLand store Pompano Pat’s, which sells firearms, ammunition and motorcycles.
Johnson said that Zimmerman, of his own accord, has been spotted outside the store since the robbery earlier this month. The thieves stole rifles worth up to $5,000 and two mini-bikes, according to Johnson.
Johnson added that although he knows Zimmerman, he has not hired him as a security officer.
Pompano Pat’s made headlines last July when it offered Zimmerman a free gun days after his murder trial ended.
Zimmerman, a former neighborhood watch leader, was acquitted of murder last summer in the death of Trayvon Martin.
