We’re back in the good old days of the coffee shops.
You may remember the coffee-shop days when people would come to Columbia and get coffee and take pictures with their friends and family, and the people would leave and not return.
It was just a fun time.
Nowadays, though, the coffee houses are just a bit less fun, and they are not as safe as they once were.
Some of the most common coffee-house crimes include: The theft of the owner’s credit card number.
This is often done by a stranger with a large bag of cash and the intent to use the card to steal the owner of the establishment.
In a recent investigation, a thief stole the owner credit card and used it to make unauthorized purchases at coffee shops around the city, including the Starbucks on Broadway, where they used the card for a large purchase.
A second crime happened in the spring of 2018, when the thief was caught and arrested.
He used the stolen card to make an unauthorized purchase at the restaurant, which was located at 1430 Broadway, but the credit card had not been used to make the purchase.
This time, he used the same card to buy a bag of coffee, which he left on the counter.
He then walked away without paying.
The thieves also made off with the owner keys to the building, which they also used to steal money from the coffee shop.
It is believed that the thieves were motivated by their belief that the owners money was going to buy them something.
The theft occurred around the same time that the coffee house was reopening.
They were hoping to reopen it and get customers back.
Unfortunately, that never happened, and now the coffee business is suffering.
The coffee houses have been robbed in Columbia every year since 2015.
In 2017, a robbery occurred at the coffee store on Broadway.
The owner was arrested for the crime and the suspect was later identified.
There are many other robberies and thefts taking place every year, and even a couple of coffee shops are robbed every year.
The worst case is in the Spring of 2019, when a man was caught shoplifting $100 from the Starbucks in the area of East 16th Street and East 9th Avenue.
He was arrested and charged with shoplifting.
He is currently being held in the Marion County Jail.
Coffee-shop thefts are not new to Columbia, and it was just one of many crimes that took place there in recent years.
The number of crimes reported in the city increased by almost 10 percent in 2017, according to the Columbia Police Department.
This increase is attributed to the large number of robberies and the recent rise in burglaries.
However, Columbia’s crime rate has remained relatively stable since the beginning of the century, and crime is expected to continue to decrease in the coming years.
