Deputies' coffee break helps solve case

It didn't take much work for two county sheriff's deputies in Minnesota to track down four burglary suspects. In fact, the suspects pulled right into the Happy Chef restaurant where the Blue Earth County deputies were on a coffee break Wednesday night.

The deputies had been investigating three residential burglaries that seemed to be related. When they were on their break at Happy Chef, a report of another burglary came in from another county, along with a description of the suspects' pickup truck.

A truck matching that description pulled right into the parking lot. The stolen goods, including laptop computers, other electronics and jewelry, were in the back.

Captain Rich Murry says it shows even a coffee break can be productive.
