(Scroll down for video) A CVS manager in Maryland, was fired from his position after successfully stopping two thieves from leaving the store with robbed narcotics.

Beltsville police said Joe Morici, an Army veteran, took the drugs away before the two thieves got away.

However, several hours later, Morici received the news that he was being fired from his position because he violated company policy, which calls on employees not to confront robbers.

Morici said that on Friday, two robbery suspects entered the business. The two robbers jumped over the counter at our pharmacy, and they took narcotics from the safe.

Morici pursued the suspects to the front door, where one of them attacked him with a screwdriver. Morici pinned one suspect down while wrestling the screwdriver away from the other robber.

Morici even managed to recover most of the pills before the suspects escaped. So far, no arrests have been made.
