Latte looters plague Chicago
CHICAGO – Chicago police are on the lookout for a band of latte looters.
Since January, thieves have walked into six Starbucks coffeehouses and made off with brand new espresso machines. The latest theft happened Tuesday, just after police visited the store to warn employees.
A man who appeared to be about 30 walked in and said he was waiting for someone, said Cassandra Clay, a “barista” who prepares drinks at the coffee bar.
A little later, Clay said she looked up and saw the man walk out the door and hop into a car without license plates. Clay then noticed the display model of the machine — marked down from $399 to $299 — was gone.
Police say they believe more than one person is at work, and while it’s possible the bandits are simply fans of a good cup of java, police don’t think that’s the case.
Ark. Rep. welcomes 14th kid
SPRINGDALE, Ark. Another year, another mouth to feed.
Senate hopeful Jim Bob Duggar and his wife are looking forward to their fourteenth child in as many years.
The state Representative’s wife, Michelle, made the announcement that she’s expecting to her family during a “praise report” while they gathered for weekend worship at home.
“I paused and everybody looked at me. Jim Bob turned around and his eyes got real big,” she said.
Duggar, 36, and his wife, 35, gave each of their children names that begin with the letter “J.” The oldest is 14, and they’ve had two sets of twins.
Duggar is seeking the Republican nomination for the Senate seat currently held by Sen. Tim Hutchinson, also a Republican.
