Thieves make off with life-sized coffee cup
Thieves helped themselves to a cup of coffee at Talk-n-Coffee in Colville last Wednesday evening, but not just any cup. The coffee shop’s white, sheet metal cup sculpture, which bears the Talk-n-Coffee logo, was stolen from its resting place on the sidewalk in front of the business, located at 119 East Astor Avenue. The cup, which was made at a local metal worker’s studio in 2007, stands at over three feet tall and serves as a float in community parades and is considered an enjoyable landmark for, “the coffee shop family” according to Talk-n-Coffee owner Scott Sanders. “It’s stood up to sun, torrential downpours and lots of snow,” says Sanders. “I would just really like it back so it can be in front of the shop where it belongs.” Sanders is offering a $50 reward for information leading to the return of the cup. To report any such information, call the Colville Police Department at 684-2424.
