Police are investigating after a woman said she found a secret camera in the coffee shop's bathroom

A Starbucks in an Atlanta suburb is allegedly the subject of a police investigation this week after a woman claimed she found a hidden camera taped in the coffee shop’s bathroom.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the 25-year-old woman said she spotted the camera on the wall under the baby-changing station in the Starbucks restroom. She said she took the camera off the wall and brought it to the store manager, who reportedly notified the Starbucks corporate office. The woman also reportedly urged the manager to call 911. He reportedly did so, and handed the camera over to officers when they arrived.

“We were quite concerned to learn this and are grateful to our customers and partners who took action to involve local authorities,” a spokesperson for Starbucks said in an email to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “We will continue to support them in any way we can.”

According to the police report, investigators found 25 videos stored on the camera. There are as yet no reported suspects in the case, but the investigation is ongoing.

Starbucks has been the subject of protests and boycotts after two black men were arrested at a Philadelphia Starbucks last week. Starbucks said it would close 8,000 of its stores for a day to conduct racial bias training in response to the incident.
