Holdup at South Park coffee kiosk

She was reportedly under the influence and with a gun

A woman with a gun robbed a coffee-kiosk tip jar in South Park Tuesday, January 14, at approximately 9:50 a.m.

Armed with what appeared to be a black semiautomatic pistol, a woman driving a two-door sedan waited in line at the Captain Kirk's drive-thru coffee stand located in the Gala Foods parking lot at the corner of Fern and Grape streets. Two baristas were on shift, and when one approached the car to take an order, the suspect showed her the weapon, told her not to scream, and demanded the contents of the tip jar.

Witnesses described the suspect as a Hispanic woman with medium-length to long dark hair, dark eyes, tattooed on the right side of her neck and on her left arm. They said she had been a regular customer of the kiosk in previous weeks and appeared disoriented this morning, possibly under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

They described the car as a two-door, silver Honda Civic, in poor condition, with rear tinted windows and the possible license number 6NQB53. SDPD Officer Gerald Uzarraga was first on the scene to take a report, and robbery detectives arrived soon after.

Police welcome any information that may lead to apprehension of the suspect. Captain' Kirk's Coffee remained open for business.
