Two men stun coffee drinkers with bold theft

Two $1400 laptops were stolen in a bizarre coffeehouse theft Monday night, January 21. Both laptops were torn away from underneath the fingertips of their owners, working unaware on their computers at the Starbucks on Yale Avenue in the Claremont Village. Two men simultaneously stole the laptops and ran off into a dark-colored sedan waiting on Second Street, driven by another male. The 2 thieves are described as black males in their early 20s, both about 5 feet 9 inches tall and 170 pounds. A similar incident was reported at a Starbucks in Chino the same day, but a connection is unknown.
