Toronto police are investigating after a hidden camera was found inside a downtown Starbucks earlier this month.
Speaking to CP24 Thursday, Toronto police spokesperson Gary Long confirmed that the camera was discovered at a Starbucks located at 4 King Street West, near Yonge Street, on the evening of May 2.
Long said police attended the location the following day and were told by staff that the camera was found on the wall, under a sink, facing the toilet.
It was concealed, Long said, behind was appeared to be an electrical outlet.
Long did not say how long the camera may have been hidden in the washroom.
Police have also not said if they have identified any suspects but confirmed that no arrests have been made.
In a written statement issued Thursday, Tim Gallant, the senior manager of external communications at Starbucks Canada, said employees regularly clean and stock the washrooms throughout the day and anything unusual is alerted to police.
“I can confirm that once alerted to the device our partners acted quickly and reported this incident immediately to the police. Store leadership in the area were contacted and we confirmed that no other devices were found. Police visited the store the following day to collect the device,” Gallant said.
“As this is an ongoing investigation, all other questions should be directed to law enforcement.”
