French Tourist Finds Hidden Camera In Deodorant Stick

A man will front court on Tuesday accused of filming women in a Sydney hostel using a camera hidden inside a deodorant stick.

A French tourist booked into a Bondi Beach hostel on Sunday, where she shared a room with another male tourist unknown to her.

At about 10pm on Monday, the 27-year-old had just finished showering in the room's en suite bathroom when she noticed what appeared to be a small camera hidden within a deodorant stick on the sink.

She took photos of the device and contacted officers from Eastern Suburbs Police Area Comand.

Police attended the scene and arrested her 36-year-old roommate -- a man on holiday from Hong Kong.

Officers alleged the remnants of a smashed camera were found at the hostel.

A search of the man's property revealed numerous hard drives and storage devices which police allege contained further videos of women in private acts.

He has been refused bail and is due to appear in Waverley Local Court.
