What would you do for one more cup ...
There are people who need their coffee. And there are people who would be willing to go to jail for their morning coffee.

Last week, a grocery store told police that an unknown man ran inside the neighborhood shop, grabbed part of the store's coffee maker and bolted out of the store.

Police are baffled by the brazen theft, which occurred at about 2:20 p.m.

"I don't know why anyone would take that," said Officer Albie Esparza.

He then gave us some ideas as to why: The thief  took the metal rack with three coffee drips off the maker, which is worth more than $400.
The man was seen getting into a dark sedan car. Police scoured the neighborhood looking for the wanna-be barista, who was no doubt already home brewing a cup of joe, or three.
