Cops: Coffee thief stealing bags of beans for cash, not buzz

WEST CHESTER, Pa. (AP) " Police in suburban Philadelphia say they have grounds to believe a one-woman string of coffee thefts across four states has been brewing for months and want the public's help in finding her.

Police in West Chester said Wednesday that the woman has stolen more than $3,000 worth of coffee from Wawa convenience stores in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland since the beginning of the year.

Authorities say she's been taking bags of coffee from one store and returning them for cash refunds at other stores.

She's suspected in as many as 50 coffee thefts.

Police say she's been known to wear scrubs, so she might have some sort of job in health care. She's been seen driving a silver sedan and a maroon SUV.
