(Scroll down for video) A young boy was shocked to find a cellphone hidden in a restaurant bathroom that was recording video, police in California said.
Lancaster police said that they are investigating the discovery of the hidden cellphone inside the women’s restroom at a Starbucks on Thursday.
A woman told police officers at the scene that her 5-year-old son made the discovery around 10:30 a.m., at the Starbucks located near Avenue K and 10th Street West.
The phone was uncovered after the boy stared under the sink and asked his mother why there was a phone there.
When she looked under the sink, she saw the cellphone, which was propped up by paper towels, with the camera pointed toward the toilet.
She immediately notified employees who contacted the police. The police found that the phone was recording video of the toilet.
Police do not yet know where the video was being sent. A spokesperson for Starbucks said that they are disturbed by this incident.
So far, no arrests have been made.
