A Georgia Lowe’s employee attempted to stop shoplifters making off with $2,100 amount of merchandise, leaving her unemployed and with a black eye.
Donna Hansbrough, 68, saw three people loading up a shopping cart at a store in Rincon, about 30 minutes north of Savannah, and then leave without stopping to pay, police said.
The veteran employee then grabbed onto the cart allegedly being pushed by Takyah Berry — who slugged the older woman in the face three times, according to authorities.
Berry, who was with her uncle, Joseph Berry, and another man police identified as Jarmar Lawton, then made off with the goods, the Rincon Police Department said in a news release.
Hansbrough was ultimately fired after 13 years on the job for violating company policy.
Rincon Police are still looking for two of the thieves.
“They say that if you see somebody stealing something out the door, not to pursue, not to go out. I lost it,” Hansbrough told the Effingham Herald.
“I grabbed the cart. I don’t actually remember going out but I did. And I grabbed the cart that had the stolen items in [it].”
Hansbrough told the Effingham Herald that she is looking for another job.
“I just got tired of seeing things get out the door. I just … I lost it,” Hansbrough told the Effingham Herald. “I basically lost all the training. Everything they tell you to do, I just … I just lost it.
“I’m going to look for a new job. I can’t sit at home. I’m not that type of person,” she said.
Lowes is not a company anyone should want to work for.
They should be Bud Lighted! This poor woman who had the courage to do this for the company she was loyal to for 13 years and anyone else that does are now treated like this? The management must have got the globalist memo from Davos and bought in. She should be rewarded. Instead, she’s fired.
