Starbucks robber waits in coffee line before demanding money
Those long lines at Starbucks can be mighty annoying -- especially when a decaf coffee frappuccino with a dash of espresso can be such a delightful way to start a lazy Sunday morning.
But one robber, between 35 and 40 years old, dressed all in black with a bandana over his face, seemed in no hurry while he waited Sunday at the Starbucks in the Pacific Beach neighborhood of San Diego, police said.
When he got to the counter, he had no interest in the latest blend from Guatemala. He told the cashier he was robbing the place and demanded money.
The cashier gave him cash from the register and the robber fled. No weapon was ever displayed. He was last seen in the parking lot getting into a full-size pickup truck, police said.
