  • 70-year-old veteran fired from job after trying to stop shoplifters

Trying to do the right thing - Jim Tinney says that has guided him pretty well in life.

The 70-year-old veteran told local media he threw a paint roller extension at one of the three men he said stole tool sets from the Home Depot in Pearland, Texas, in an attempt to stop them.

"In the Army, they train you to do things like that", Tinney told the station.

Tinney reportedly told the local media that he chose to throw a paint roller extension toward one of the three shoplifters who he noticed was stealing several tool sets from Home Depot in Pearland, Texas to prevent them from leaving the store premises.

"One of them hollered, 'Let's go.' And they all grabbed their kits and started heading out", Tinney said. That's pretty strong, ' he said.

But regardless of Tinney's intentions, two weeks later the store fired him for the incident, citing company policy that prohibits confronting shoplifters. "I just automatically went like this, and threw the stick at their feet", he said.

"We have a strict policy that only our trained security personnel can pursue and engage shoplifters", Holmes said in a statement.

'I think they could have written me up and reprimanded me, but terminate me?

Tinney admits his training at the store said not to confront shoplifters, but he says it was just a reflex. "We've had deaths and serious injury over the years, and no amount of merchandise is more important than the safety of our associates and customers", the company communications head stated.

The veteran who has been around the world serving his country said he's having trouble finding another job. "I'm 70 years old". I need to work, and I needed that job. I enjoyed working with customers figuring out what they wanted to do.

Home Depot also said in its statement that over the past 24 hours shoplifters pulled guns at 2 different Home Depots at both ends of the country.
