According to a police report, the woman removed the device and alerted the manager, who further passed on the disturbing news to the head office of Starbucks’ chain.
There was certainly a slender chance of the device having been fake or perhaps unplugged, but, in cruel irony, the police retrieved a one-hour video featuring at least eight people, both men and women, using the restroom. They noted, though, that due to the poor quality of the visual picture no "private parts" could be seen.

A discovery in a Starbucks located in an Atlanta suburb now adds to the woes of the Seattle company as a 25-year-old customer found a camera inside a restroom, which the police have confirmed had been secretly taping people visiting the premises. https://t.co/hpimyW4j4b #news— chondram (@chondram) 22 апреля 2018 г.
Tuesday’s discovery comes less than a week after the coffee giant literally infuriated people all around the globe with an incident at a Philadelphia location, where two black men were detained for reportedly trespassing.

Both the company and Philadelphia’s police commissioner shortly thereafter apologized for the move. In response, Starbucks opted for what it called "racial bias training" slated for May 29 in 8,000 of its locations, which are therefore to be closed on that day.
