Dollar General / management

1 1801 airline dr suite b, Metairie, LA, United States Review updated:

The manager, Melissa Atkins located at 1801 Airline Dr Suite B, Metairie, La 70005 is becoming increasingly dangerous to shoppers. On 1/17/19 at approximately 1644 hours, Melissa called 911 advising there were shoplifters in the store. Before police arrived, the two black male shoppers had left the location and did not steal anything. Video surveillance shows one black male selecting approximately a handful of items from the hygiene section totaling approx 20.00 or less and Melissa called 911 reporting he was shoplifting because she believed he was going to run out of the store. As the male was still browsing the aisle Melissa armed herself with a box cutter, because she said she was not certain what he was going to do, then walked up to him, slapped the shopping hand cart from his hand and told him to leave. The male never attempted to flee the store with merchandise. All this occurred while he was merely a shopping customer. Melissa committed aggravate assault, but luckily the customer did not wish to pursue charges. Melissa has been informed in the past on multiple occasions that she is not to engage with shoplifters as she is not loss prevention and if theft is such a concern by Dollar General, they would hire security, whether private or public.
