February 1, 2010 · 4:43 PM
A 911 call reporting an armed robbery at a Silverdale espresso stand Saturday was delayed after the suspect flashed a handgun and threatened the barista.
Kitsap County sheriff's arrived two minutes after the 6:35 p.m. report, bringing along a tracking dog to AllStar Espresso, 10710 Silverdale Way NW but a suspect was not located, according to a statement from the office.
The espresso stand is adjacent to All Star Lanes and Casino.
The call to deputies was delayed "several minutes," the statement said.
The employee told investigators a man approached the stand on foot from the window facing NW Myhre Road, displayed a dark-colored handgun from his jacket and handed the employee a plastic shopping bag for the money.
The suspect was described as white, late 40s to early 50s in age, about six-feet-two-inches with a medium build and "salt and pepper" goatee.
He was wearing a light-colored jacket, a dark blue baseball cap, blue jeans and large eyeglasses described as "safety type" glasses.
