Justin Bieber has just found trouble in Atlanta ... one of his security guards and a driver are under arrest for stealing a photog's camera at a fun house ... TMZ has learned.

Justin rented out an amusement park Tuesday afternoon, and while he was inside, law enforcement tells us a member of his security team went outside to his Escalade and told waiting paparazzi to stay cool because Justin was about to come out.

We're told the security guy got into it with one of the photogs, grabbed the guy's camera and handed it to the driver.  The security guy then allegedly jumped in the car and told the driver to take off.

Cops found the Escalade at the home Justin is renting from rap mogul Dallas Austin and they searched it for the camera, which they located inside. We're told the photog followed the vehicle to Justin's house. Police then returned the camera to him.

The guard and the driver were arrested for FELONY theft.  The photog valued the camera at $10K.

Law enforcement sources say cops removed 2 backpacks from the Escalade, but one law enforcement source tells us they didn't find any contraband.

Wow ...    

What kind of morons does this kid employ? Justin is not worth having a criminal record. I understand the need to advise the paps to back off, but to steal a camera or get physical as many of his guards do, well again, being criminal for JB is not worth it!

And how is this trouble for Beiber? And btw, I don't think these security peeps that work for celebs are the sharpest knife in the drawer.

Justin may want to add "Don't F * * K UP" to the list of qualifications of the people he hires to be around him.

Hey everywhere he goes the law enforcement are paying it forward. They've got his number before he arrives, just waiting for him to slip up .....because he will. No matter where he moves to it will be the same old thing. He and his Lil friends will be watched like a hawk. It's not if he will get busted it's when......we don't have long to wait.
