Donna Hansbrough Wiki – Donna Hansbrough Biography

A Lowe’s worker was fired from a Georgia store for involvement in a robbery that left her with a black eye. Donna Hansbrough, 68, tried to stop a gang of thieves who took more than $2,000 worth of merchandise from her store in Rincon, Georgia last month. The robbers refused to go quietly and repeatedly punched her in the face, leaving her with a black eye.

Despite its heroic efforts to stand up to criminals, Lowe’s fired Hansbrough’s after 13 years for violating company policy that state personnel who witness shoplifting should not intervene and instead call authorities. “The guy decided that he wanted to be let go, so he hit me and grabbed my glasses while I was still holding on to the cart,” Hansbrough, who worked for Lowe’s for more than thirteen years, recalled to WTOC. He hit me over and over again,’ she said through tears.

Authorities have identified the suspects as Takyah Berry, her uncle Joseph Berry and another man, Jarmar Lawton. Police say both Berrys remain at large. “They say if you see someone stealing something from the door, don’t chase them, don’t go out,” Hansbrough told the Effingham Herald. I got tired of seeing things walk out the door. I basically lost all training. Everything they tell you to do, I just…just missed it,’ she explained.


“I didn’t expect to get fired, maybe a reprimand or suspension,” Hansbrough said. ‘I’m going to look for a new job. I can’t sit at home. I’m not that kind of person’. If the thieves are brought to trial, Hansbrough said she would help authorities with whatever they need: “If they need me, I’ll be there.”

Why did Donna Hansbrough fired from job

Detective Vance of the Rincon Police Department said the employee had suffered “two traumatic events at once being violently attacked and losing her job, her happiness, her peace, all at the same time.” Lowes did not immediately respond to’s request for comment. It is the latest in a series of cases in the US where employees have lost their jobs for intervening in shoplifting incidents.


In June, a worker at a King Soopers grocery store in Colorado was fired for filming thieves stealing $500 worth of laundry detergent and unloading it into his car. Santino Burrola sprang into action when a group of robbers attacked the store in Arapahoe County, Colorado on June 18, filming now-viral video of the crime in action.

He chased the group out of the store and filmed as they unloaded countless boxes into his car, even removing the license plate cover to help track them down. But his actions allegedly violated store policies on confronting shoplifters, and Burrola was fired on the spot after a meeting with his union representative.

The retail worker’s video of the thieves quickly gained popularity after he posted it on social media, and was even shared by the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office as they continue to investigate the crime. Burrola said that as soon as he saw the thieves flee with loads of laundry detergent, his “first instinct was to record.”


As he followed the men out of the store, Burrola was heard taunting the thieves and questioning his audacious theft. ‘Really brother? Do you have to resort to this? he said he in the video. The economy is not so bad. The thugs then attempted to get away from Burrola as he continued filming near him, prompting him to rip off a foil cover to expose his license plate.

But the store took offense at his daring effort, and Burrola said parent company Kroger felt he violated its policy against shoplifting employees. Lululemon has also been criticized for firing staff who confronted masked shoplifters at its Peachtree Corners store in Atlanta. Two Lululemon employees were fired in May for “breaking employee policy” after brazen thieves stole loads of expensive yoga equipment and tried to apprehend them.

Shocking footage shows masked robbers grabbing merchandise from displays near the front of the store before running off to their getaway car. Jennifer Ferguson and Rachel Rogers, who worked on the front lines, say they were fired for trying to stop them and “breaking the employee handbook policy” not to interfere in a robbery.


Lululemon’s CEO later upheld the decision. “We have a zero tolerance policy where we train our educators to participate during a robbery,” McDonald said on CNBC. It’s just merchandise. Stores in the US are experiencing a sharp increase in crime and some major retailers have been forced to close their stores due to millions of dollars in losses as rampant theft hits businesses.

In 2021, shoplifting cost retailers $100 billion. Stores in San Francisco, New York and many other metropolitan areas have been hit by a spike in shoplifting. That has prompted retailers to lock up many items to try to prevent brazen thieves from looting merchandise and storming out of stores.Read more…….
