Veteran fired from CVS after trying to stop robbery

When two suspects tried robbing a Maryland CVS on Friday, Army veteran Joe
Morici sprang into action, and it cost him his job.

Morici, who served seven years in the Army, including a stint in Afghanistan,
was fired from his management job at a Beltsville CVS because he intervened
and tried to catch the men, FOX5 reported.

But Morici said his reactions were purely based on instinct when two men tried
robbing the CVS pharmacy during his shift.

He quickly told cashiers to call 911 and helped an elderly man out of the store
before locking the doors, preventing the suspects from leaving. Then he
confronted them.
