When a car pulled up to the Dutch Bros. Coffee kiosk, located at 6710 S.E. Foster Road after dark on Monday evening, July 31, a man inside made it clear he wasn't looking for an early-evening pick-me-up.
Portland Police Bureau (PPB) East Precinct officers were called to the coffee shop at 9:18 p.m. to investigate a robbery. Within minutes, officers were driving through nearby streets in the Foster-Powell neighborhood, looking for the suspect's vehicle.
"Officers learned that this was a robbery, at gunpoint," explained PPB Public Information Officer Sergeant Chris Burley. "The subjects arrived in a car, demanded money while brandishing a firearm, and left the area."
Robbery Division detectives have declined to reveal more about this holdup, due to the ongoing investigation, Burley said.
