The trial for a man suspected of robbing a Columbia coffee shop at gunpoint is scheduled for Wednesday.
Police said 50-year-old Anthony Paine forced himself into Kaldi’s Coffee off 9th Street 2 years ago before he robbed an employee with a gun.
The worker opened the back door earlier in the morning for someone else.
Paine was caught a few weeks later in St. Louis. He has had at least 11 prior convictions.
