ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — George Zimmerman ordered a bulletproof vest and an infrared home security device last year while he was out on bond awaiting his murder trial in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, according to records released Thursday.

The records logged by Seminole County police monitoring Zimmerman during his release show that he checked in with deputies by telephone every two days and that he and his wife, Shellie, moved at least three times last year.

Under the terms of his release on $1 million bond, Zimmerman was required to stay in Seminole County except to visit his attorneys in a neighboring county. He also was required to wear a GPS device, which was monitored by deputies.

Zimmerman was acquitted of last month for fatally shooting the unarmed 17-year-old Martin last year in Sanford, where Zimmerman lived and Martin was visiting.

Deputies were notified about the bulletproof vest and home security device from a sales representative from a police supply business. When asked about them, Zimmerman said he had ordered the items for his protection.

Zimmerman’s visit to a sporting goods store also piqued deputies’ interest last August. They reviewed the store’s security tape to make sure Zimmerman hadn’t stepped foot in an area where the store sells firearms.

    It sad he has to do that. I feel for the Martins loss. But hardly anyone ever talks about Trayvons choice of breaking the law and assulting Zimmerman.

    • I am so sick of people acting as if Trayvon didn’t have a right to defend himself. Zimm is a private citizen and he had no right to try and detain that boy. He admitted that Trayvon noticed he was watching him and that Trayvon tried to run from him. That boy did not know Zimm was neighborhood watch. He just knew he was creepy and he wanted to get away.

        Trayvon was the only criminal in that incident, and Trayvon was high on illegal dope on top of that. America is better now without him, and it will save the citizens the future-costs of incarcerating him for many years, if not decades. I couldn’t be happier Trayvon is no longer, eliminated through his own actions.
