SAN FRANCISCO - Police defused an explosive device found in the bathroom of a Starbucks on Monday. No one was injured.

Authorities were called around 1:15 p.m., after an employee reported finding something suspicious in the store's bathroom. About 100 people were evacuated from the store and apartments above it, and the street was closed to traffic, said Sgt. Neville Gittens.

"This was a good device. If it had exploded, it would have caused injuries or damage," said Gittens, who would not describe its size.

Well this one is a hard one to call. It could be a terrorist attack or just someone who really doesn’t like starbucks. I guess well just have to see after the investigation is finished.

Well since this isnt really news "worthy" of ATSNN for some reason Ill add that Police have a suspect in custody. Foamy the squirrel was picked up shortly after the incident for questioning. Police are using previous interactions with starbucks employees as a motive.

Link has some bad launguage

My guess is that someone has finally had enough with the prices at places like Starbucks. Either that, or the mind-blowing length of the menu.

These days if you ask for a straight-up coffee they look at you like you're speaking Greek. That's why I get my coffee at Dunkin' Donuts! Good, old-fashioned cheap American joe!

I must add that if this becomes a regular occurance at Starbucks it'll be pretty ironic to see the frightening world of IED's being brought into the lives of the left-wing, anti-war Starbucks yuppies!

I'd put someone like Juan Valdez at the top of the suspect list. With places like Starbucks popping up on every corner of America it must be hurting his business. I heard he already had to pawn his donkey!

This was well written North Rider. ...Next time you submit, maybe add a bit more commentary at the end, and focus on the conspiracy angle?

Good job tho. Keep trying.

Hey Marg, meet me at Dilworth Coffeehouse.. I swear I'm craving a Blended Ice Mocha.


If someone blows up a high end coffee shop these days, who can much blame them? I got hooked on those stupid adult vanilla milkshakes and now I pay like $4.50 for one! That's insane!!!!

I got a card so I get free venti coffees all the time
But really why look at the price when you are enjoying something that is truly good.

If the Dairy Queen was closer, I'd gladly give them $1 or $1.75 or whatever it is, for a milkshake instead.

That right there is a good reason to do what I do and put my money right in Juans pocket and brew it at home. Straight up no cream no sugar no sissified mocha milkshakes. Straight up black hot coffee.

We make it at work and sell it for 20 cents a cup.

We totally undersell the copy desk.

Hello Longhaircowboy,

In answer to your question, no I am not accusing you of being old. Maybe of being as wise as an old-timer, but certainly not old.

Actually, it was an older relative I was treating to their first Starbucks coffee experience. They too were not into all the flavors, cremes, froth, soy, non-fat, etc. When they placed their order, I thought it was the best.

By the way, I also take mine hot and black; no sugar or cream.

Well.. since we're getting all personal..

Over and out.

Cream is coffee is cool. One thing I cannot get used to is cream in tea. Yikes! What's that like (or about)?

Cream in tea? Never heard of that. But then I dont hang at starbucks cause I'm a suspect in the bombing attempt.
