Last year, a similar incident occurred at a Starbucks in Georgia. According to a police report, a woman discovered a camera taped under a baby changing station inside the women’s bathroom. When it was found, the device reportedly had 25 videos stored on the camera, including several of people using the restroom.

A similar incident occurred recently in a Costa Coffee shop in the UK. All companies take the safety and privacy of their staff and customers very seriously and more often than not, respond quickly and effectively.
