The Rocky Mountain News reports on a heist at a Denver-area Starbucks. A man went in to get a coffee. When he came out, three masked bandits held him up at gunpoint. They stole $300,000 worth of jewelry from his van. Included in the stolen goods: bejeweled dog collars.

ARI SHAPIRO, host:

Good morning. I'm Ari Shapiro.

As President Obama arrives in Denver today, the Secret Service might want to look out for jewel thieves. The Rocky Mountain News reports on a heist at a Starbucks south of Denver. A man went in to get a coffee and when he came out three masked bandits held him up at gunpoint. They stole $300,000 worth of jewelry from his van. Just don't tell the bandits' wives that those expensive collars are designer dog jewelry.

It's MORNING EDITION.
