How much is a cup of coffee at Starbucks? For a jewelry salesman from Kansas, it ended up costing about $300,000.

Police say the man stopped for coffee Monday at a Starbucks in Parker, Colo., south of Denver. He was just returning to his car when he was held up.

Three masked robbers took three "tubs" of jewelry and a briefcase containing the salesman's handgun, the Rocky Mountain News reported.

Police didn't identify the 64-year-old salesman.

Parker police spokeswoman Elise Penington said the victim was in town for a trade show. One of the robbers allegedly brandished a gun, but no one was injured in the robbery.
