The FBI arrested a suspect accused of vandalizing three Starbucks stores and leaving behind suspicious devices, including one that detonated, early Friday in Albuquerque.

The suspect, who has not yet been identified, was arrested Saturday.

The ATF also is investigating.

The stores appear to have been struck with bullet holes, and glass doors were shattered.

“We heard gunshots go off. At least four rounds of gunshots go off, and then we heard a large explosion,” a witness who lives near the Starbucks in Albuquerque’s Nob Hill told KOAT-TV. “It was like a big flash — like, orange and white — just smoke everywhere.”

The explosive device that detonated caused minimal damage to a Starbucks in southeast Albuquerque.

Coffee, Anyone? Homeland Security Spends $30,000 at Starbucks Using ‘Purchase Cards’

Homeland Security officials appear to have an affinity for Starbucks.

NBC-4 Washington reports that Homeland Security employees spent $30,000 at the coffee chain in 2013.

The drinks were bought with so-called purchase cards.

At a Starbucks in Alameda, Calif., agency employees spent $12,000.

“I don’t know the agency’s needs or contingencies, but going to Starbucks seems like a really hard sell,” former Inspector General for the U.S. General Services Administration Brian Miller said.

A DHS spokesman said the purchases followed protocol.
