LAKEWOOD, Calif. — A Starbucks employee in the Los Angeles area is out of a job after a customer caught her stealing her credit card information and using it on a shopping spree.

“You come to Starbucks to get coffee, not to get robbed,” Juana Martinez said.

But that’s what happened as Martinez had someone record as she rolled up to a Starbucks drive-thru window and accused the cashier of copying her credit card number the day before.

Martinez told the clerk that she has the cashier on camera spending $212 at a grocery store with her credit card information.

“You took a copy of my card, here,” Martinez told the cashier.

“I’m sorry that I took money from you and your kids. I’m sorry that you had to come up here. I’m sorry this is inconvenient for you,” the cashier could be heard saying.

The cashier said she is a really good person, that she goes to school and plays soccer. She offered to give Martinez $150.

Martinez said she is considering pressing charges but for now, the cashier has been fired. Martinez’s brother, Brian Espinoza, wrote on Facebook that the incident has been reported to police.
