Huntsville, Alabama police are reporting that an attempted robbery over the weekend was stopped by none other than a free cup of joe.

A Starbucks employee was told by the robber that they should give them all the money from the cash drawer. Instead, the employee said 'no' but asked the robber if they'd like a free cup of coffee instead. The robber actually said sure. By the time he left the cops were waiting and arrested him.

YAY justice...and coffee!
