A bodyguard and a driver for Justin Bieber allegedly stole a photographer’s camera worth about $10, 000 Tuesday afternoon in Sandy Springs. They were arrested a short time later, police said.

The pop star had rented the Funhouse at 6650 Roswell Road and was there with his entourage when the alleged robbery occurred. But police said the pop star was not outside when the incident happened and was not a part of it.

The guard, Mr. Hugo Hesny, warned the photographer that he was too close, according to Sandy Springs police.

“A confrontation ensued and the photographer attempted to leave the location but at some point, the security guard caught up and took the camera, placed it in the Escalade and instructed the driver, 49-year old Terrance Johnson to return to Bieber’s house,” police spokesman Capt. Steve Rose said in a news release.

An officer stopped the Escalade as it was pulling into the home, Capt. Rose said. At that point, the camera was recovered and the two men taken into custody and charged with felony theft, he said.

Mr. Hesny, 32, and Mr. Johnson were being booked into the Fulton County jail late Tuesday.
