According to the release:
A Chipotle employee found a video camera hidden in a women’s restroom at the restaurant, and, after learning of the discovery, Chipotle management notified Missouri City police and immediately terminated the employee.
The employee was arrested by Missouri City police, and formal charges have been filed. The initial investigation suggests that the camera had been in place for a period of less than a week in February.
“We were shocked and appalled to learn of these allegations,” Tim Spong, executive director of security at Chipotle, announces in the release. “Nothing is more important than providing a safe environment for our customers and employees, and we have a zero tolerance policy for employee actions that compromise the safety or well-being of customers or other employees. We will continue to work with police throughout this investigation and throughout the prosecution of the individual involved.”
Customers at this Missouri City location are urged to contact Detective Medina with the Missouri City police at 281-403-5867 if they have any information related to the incident.
