A suspect fleeing the scene of a laptop grab at the 23rd and Jackson Starbucks was caught by police on the run a few blocks away Tuesday afternoon.
Police saw the suspect running with the laptop and tracked him trough nearby yards until taking him into custody on 25th Ave S. In addition to the stolen laptop — still displaying the Web page the victim had been browsing when it was taken — police also recovered a stolen handgun.
Another male suspected of being involved in the robbery was not found by police.
The theft happened inside an extremely crowded Starbucks just after 2 PM. SPD was having difficulty processing the large number of witnesses to the crime. That store has been a hot topic of conversation on the site following a recent brawl inside the coffee hangout at the end of January.
