SPOKANE, WA – If you tick off the baristas at Jitterz Coffee Shop in Spokane, you may be in for more than a sneezed-off muffin. Frustrated with a recent rash of robberies, three in one month, a half dozen employees at Jitterz are now packing heat.

Recently, a suspect holding what looked like a weapon tried to enter the shop through the drive-thru window. A female employee was able to block his entrance and grab her gun to fend the intruder off.

Customers say they don’t seem to mind the added security. So be careful next time you ask for an extra…”shot.”
