Justin Bieber has only been "staying in" Atlanta for a short time, and already there is negative press revolving around him. TMZ reported that one of Bieber's security guards and a driver were arrested Tuesday on suspicion of the theft of a photographer's camera in Sandy Springs, Ga.

Reportedly, on Tuesday afternoon, Bieber rented out a local amusement park. While he was inside, according to law enforcement sources, one of his security team members went outside to Bieber's Cadillac Escalade. The guard told waiting paparazzi that Bieber was about to come out, but after that, got into a dispute with one of the photographers. According to the report, he took the photographer's camera and gave it to the driver.

The guard then hopped into the Escalade, and left.

Later, police found the Escalade and the two men at the home that Bieber is renting from Dallas Austin (remember that?). They located the camera inside the vehicle, and arrested the two men, since identified as 32-year-old Hugo Hesny, the guard, and 49-year-old Terrance Johnson, the driver, for felony theft. The photographer valued the camera at approximately $10,000.

In addition to the camera, law enforcement sources said police removed two backpacks from the Escalade, but found no contraband.
