A Starbucks in Atlanta is under investigation after a customer found a hidden camera in its bathroom. The incident happened last week. The police have confirmed the investigation.
The customer that found that camera said the device was attached below a baby changing station in the coffee shop’s restroom. The 25-year-old woman informed the manager about the camera, and the manager briefed the company’s corporate office.
We were quite concerned to learn this and are grateful to our customers and partners who took action to involve local authorities,
a spokesman for the company told the press last week.
The manager who was alerted by the customer said he gave the device to a police officer. The police unveiled that 25 clips were stored on the camera. Some of the videos were of Starbucks customers using the bathroom.
The Footage Is Not Compromising
A police officer said that the videos were an hour’s worth. The videos showed up to 10 women and men using the restroom. Fortunately, the camera was not very advanced and because of the low quality of the videos, no private parts were visible in the footage.
So far, the police haven’t identified any suspect. Authorities have underlined that placing a hidden camera in a restroom is a felony.
The findings came just days after Starbucks’ was involved in a nationwide scandal about the arrest of two African Americans at one of its locations in Philly. The men, who hadn’t ordered anything but reportedly had tried to use the restroom, were arrested for trespassing.
Starbucks admitted wrongdoing and apologized to the two men. The police chief apologized as well. On May 29, the coffee chain will temporarily shut down 8,000 shops as its employees will receive more training to prevent “racial bias.”
