Holcomb says she was fired after a March 31 robbery at a Popeyes in Channelview for not paying back $400 stolen by a gunman.

The franchise owner says Holcomb broke policy by leaving too much cash in the register.

Holcomb, who's married with three children, received an apology last week from the owner and was offered her old job back.

A statement Thursday from Atlanta-based Popeyes says the company received a letter from an attorney for Holcomb about an event at an independently owned and operated location. The company declined further comment.
