    SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — The next robber who tries to hold up Jitterz Java in Spokane is likely to face a gun.

    After three robberies in a month, the owner says there always will be a gun at the coffee stand.

    Owner Sara Chapel told KXLY (http://bit.ly/1gQfbkD ) some of her employees are already bringing their own guns to work.

    On Sunday, a man aggressively tried to open a window and appeared to have a gun. The barista kept the window locked, grabbed her gun and called police. The man took off before police arrived.
