Feds: Two Y-12 guards caught sleeping on the job in past four years

OAK RIDGE, Tenn (WVLT) -- Two security guards at Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge were found snoozing at their post, according to federal authorities.

National Nuclear Security Administration spokesman Steve Wyatt says the instances span back four years.

The guards worked for the government's security contractor, Wackenhut Services Incorporated. Wyatt says one guard was fired, the other got a 30-day supsension without pay.

Wyatt says Y-12 won't tolerate sleeping on the job. He also says the two incidents aren't representative of all security personnel.
