This Popeyes Manager Was Fired After She Refused to Repay $400 Stolen By Armed Robber
Last month, Marissa Holcomb was working as the manager of a Popeyes restaurant in Channelview, Texas when a masked man barged in with a gun and demanded all the money. She opened one of the cash registers and the robber got away with almost $400. (On the day of the robbery, the fast food restaurant was having a 2-piece chicken meal for $1.19 promotion.) After the robbery, Marissa's manager told her she needed to repay the stolen money. "I told them I'm not paying nothing," she said. "I just had a gun to me. I'm not paying the money." She was fired and then called the local TV station, who reached out to the Popeyes franchise owner for comment. They said Marissa didn't follow company policy by leaving too much money in the cash register. So when she wouldn't repaid the lost money, she was fired. 'Cause them's the rules.
