Backpacker charged after woman finds hidden camera in Bondi hostel bathroom | Australia news


A tourist from Hong Kong is behind bars after allegedly hiding a camera inside a deodorant stick in the bathroom of a hostel at Sydney’s famous Bondi Beach.

The man’s roommate – a woman on holiday from France – had just finished showering when she spotted the camera and a toiletry bag on the sink of their shared ensuite on Monday night.

The 27-year-old took photos of the device before contacting police.

Officers arrested and searched a 36-year-old man, who allegedly had numerous hard drives and storage devices with videos of other women in private acts.

“Police will allege the remnants of a smashed camera were found when the man was searched,” New South Wales police said in a statement.

He has been charged with installing a device to observe or film others, and possessing surveillance devices intended for unlawful use.

The man was refused bail to appear at Waverley local court on Tuesday.
