Coweta County GA Jan 2 2017 A waitress at a Georgia Waffle House got fired from her job after she tried to protect the restaurant from three robbers who demanded cash.
Coweta County officials are still searching for three male robbers who entered the Waffle House early Thursday morning in Newnan, Ga.
When the men entered the restaurant around 2:30 a.m., one of them walked over to the counter and gave an employee a note threatening to shoot everyone inside the restaurant unless they handed over money, according to a police report.
Heather Stanley’s co-worker gave her the note, prompting her to grab her gun from her car. She then fired once into the air as the robbers escaped to their vehicles.
“I know what I did. To myself I felt it was right and wouldn’t hesitate, I would do it again,” Stanley told WSB-TV.
No one was hurt during the incident, officials said.
Stanley was then fired as a result of her actions, adding that she didn’t expect management would take drastic measures.
“For trying to protect their Waffle House and trying to protect their money and to get their money back, they let me go,” she said.
The mother of three set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for expenses while she searches for a new job.
