      After 3 robberies, Spokane baristas are packing heat

      SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - The next robber who tries to hold up Jitterz Java in Spokane is likely to face a gun.

      After three robberies in a month, the owner says there always will be a gun at the coffee stand.

      Owner Sara Chapel told KXLY some of her employees are already bringing their own guns to work.

      On Sunday, a man aggressively tried to open a window and appeared to have a gun. The barista kept the window locked, grabbed her gun and called police. The man took off before police arrived.
