Human Bean on Highway 99 robbed

Jan 22, 2013 (Mail Tribune - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- A Human Bean coffee stand south of Medford was robbed at gunpoint Monday night, and police say the incident could be linked to the recent robbery of a Bad Ass Coffee in Medford last week.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Department reported a man walked up to the drive-thru stand in the 3900 block of South Pacific Highway at just before 8:50 p.m., pointed a gun at the lone female employee, and demanded money. He fled with an undisclosed amount of cash and was last seen running toward Fern Valley Road.

"The description is very similar, (as are) the time in which it happened and the manner in which it happened," sheriff's spokeswoman Andrea Carlson said.

No one was hurt, officials reported.

The suspect was described as a white man in his late 20s to early 30s, about 5 feet 9 inches and thin. He wore dark jeans, a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt and a mask.

This is the second armed robbery in less than a week for the Rogue Valley.

The Bad Ass Coffee shop at 750 Crater Lake Ave. was robbed at about 8:40 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 15. Medford police reported a white man in his early 20s walked up to the drive-thru window, pulled out a gun and pointed it at the lone employee, a teenage girl. He demanded money, took an undisclosed amount of cash and fled. He was last seen running north on Crater Lake Avenue.

The man in the Bad Ass Coffee robbery was described as being between 5 feet 5 inches and 5 feet 8 inches tall, wearing jeans and a black jacket or sweatshirt with the hood up. His face was covered.

No suspects have been arrested in either case.

Anyone with information about the Human Bean robbery is urged to call the Jackson County Sheriff's Office tip line at 541-774-8333 or Crime Stoppers of Southern Oregon at 1-800-850-0580. Anyone who submits information that leads to an arrest can receive up a reward up to $1,000.

Anyone with information about the Bad Ass Coffee robbery should call Medford police Detective Brenda Garich at 541-774-2230.
