Customer confronts Starbucks cashier in California about alleged card theft

In a video posted online, a customer is seen confronting a barista in an incredibly uncomfortable showdown at a California Starbucks.

Juana Martinez alleges that she noticed a $200 charge on her credit card for groceries. She looked at the store's surveillance video of the transaction and says she recognized the alleged thief as the her Starbucks barista.

Martinez returned to the coffee shop to confront the young woman.

The full confrontation involves graphic language, but at one point, Martinez says, "You know what you did, right?"

The barista then appears to confess, saying, "I'm sorry that I took money from you and your kids."

That barista apologized repeatedly and begged Martinez not to press charges. Starbucks later stated it had since fired the employee. It's unknown if she's been charged yet.
