Dollar General Employee Fired After Chasing, Hitting Thief With Car
A Dollar General employee is now jobless after taking matters into her own hands with a persistent thief at the store she was formerly employed at.
Jessie Sotto, a cashier at a Dollar General in Fresno, California, says that this thief has been a persistent problem at her store as well as others in the Fresno area, and eventually she'd had enough - and took what she thought to be the company's best interests into her own hands.
Doorbell camera footage shows the thief riding his bike blocks away from the store, when Jessie rolls into the frame, cutting the thief off and hitting him with the fender of her car.
The stolen items were scattered across the driveway of the home where Jessie knocked him off of his bicycle.
Jessie said the man walked out flowers, chips, donuts, bread, cheese, bologna as well as other items without paying for any of it. She chased him down and asked for the items back, which she says he refused to do and called her a "bitch." So she followed with her car.
The thief threatened to press charges against Jessie, but she says in an interview that she hasn't heard from the guy or the authorities since the incident.
Police told TMZ they responded to the scene, but the thief was nowhere to be found, so obviously there was no report taken from him.
Jessie now is making her money driving for DoorDash, delivering food around the Fresno area - so other thieves should beware if she's in the area, because she's already in her car.
