Coffee break pays off for Minnesota deputies

Reminds me of that Clint Eastwood movie, where he went into his usual diner and ordered a cup of coffee, they put sugar in it ( he always took it black) as a sign that they were being held up. He walks outside, sips the coffee, then walks back into the diner and took care of the bad guys. Do you remember the name of this movie? I don't. Leave a comment with the movies name and I'll send you a FREE liQuid heaVen coffee pod.

MANKATO, Minn. — Two Blue Earth County sheriff's deputies didn't have to work too hard to track down four burglary suspects. The suspects, in fact, pulled right into the Happy Chef restaurant where the deputies were on a coffee break Wednesday night. The deputies had been investigating three residential burglaries that night that had similar methods of operation. When they were on their break at Happy Chef, a report of another burglary came in from Le Sueur County with a description of the suspects' pickup truck.

A truck matching the description then pulled into parking lot and the deputies didn't have to go far to make an arrest. And, the stolen goods, including laptop computers, other electronics and jewelry, were in the back.

Captain Rich Murry said even a coffee break can be productive.
