Oscar Aguilar
IA-07-029
IAORDER 01/22/2008 On January 22, 2008, an Immediately Effective Order prohibiting an individual, a contract security officer with the Wackenhut Corporation, from involvement in all NRC-licensed activities for a period of five years from the date the Order was issued. The Order was issued based on activities that occurred on or about April of 2004. Specifically, Mr. Aguilar deliberately removed firing pins from two contingency response weapons, rendering the weapons non-functional. As a result, Mr. Aguilar caused FPL to be in violation of NRC Order for Interim Compensatory Measures, dated February 25, 2002, Section B.4(f). Mr. Aguilar's actions in this regard constituted a violation of 10 CFR 50.5.

(SL III)
01/13/2014 On January 13, 2014, the NRC issued a Severity Level III Notice of Violation to Mr. John Amburgey, formerly employed as a security officer at the Surry Power Station (SPS), for deliberate misconduct that caused SPS to be in violation of 10 CFR 73.55(i)(5)(ii), which states, in part, that licensees provide continuous surveillance, observation, and monitoring of the owner controlled area as described in their physical security plan.  Specifically, co-workers detected the odor of alcohol on his breath and immediately reported this observation to site security supervision.  In response, he was promptly for-cause tested for alcohol, and test results confirmed a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level of 0.139 percent.  Because his BAC exceeded the 10 CFR 26.103 limit of 0.04 percent, SPS declared the test result for alcohol as a confirmed positive test and relieved him of duty.  Based on the confirmed positive test, and the fact that he had been on duty approximately 5 hours into his shift as an armed security officer, SPS declared him unfit for duty and unable to effectively perform his assigned security duties.
