SO SAD:::Autozone Fires An Air Force Veteran, Devin McClean, For Foiling Robbery
York County, Va.- Autozone fired one of its employee’s, Devin McClean, an Air Force Veteran, after he foils a robbery.
Devin was working at the Autozone in York County, Va. When a criminal nicknamed “The Beard Bandit” walked into the store brandishing a weapon. This guy had already robbed the store once before, and was a suspect in 30 other robberies. The Air Force Veteran took action:
“I waited for him to go up toward the front, I ran out of the restroom, ran out to my truck where I keep my own personal weapon, grabbed my weapon, came back into the store and confronted the guy,” says McClean.
“When I yelled “freeze” and I said “Stop, drop the weapon,” he threw his hands up with his gun still in his hand he started running,” says McClean. “I felt like it was my responsibility to step in.”
Devin’s manager is grateful.
“He was like “Thank you Devin, you really saved my life,” says McClean.
