A tourist has claimed she found a secret camera hidden inside a water bottle that had been positioned on the sand at a Sydney beach to film women and children.
Michelle Montcourt said she was relaxing at Lady Robinsons Beach in Brighton Le Sands, in Sydney’s south, when she noticed a man in his 30s place a water bottle “directly behind” her.
“I thought ‘oh my god, this is so sick’,” she told 9News.
“I saw it and thought to myself, I can’t believe he left his rubbish on the beach. So I picked it up to throw it away and noticed there was a hidden camera inside,” she wrote in a warning issued to Facebook.
“He left running when I saw the camera inside the water bottle.”
Once the bottle's label was removed the blue camera became visible.

In a video she posted, Ms Moncourt points out a small hole strategically poked through a dark part of the label the lens could better blend into.
She peels back the label to uncover a small, flat camera matched to the colour of the bottle, which appears to have been tampered with to accommodate the box.

Ms Monocourt, who is returning to Mexico in a matter of days, said the memory card contained video footage of herself, along with other mothers and children on the beach.
NSW Police told 9News an investigation had been launched, however it was still in its “infancy”.
Officers at St George Police Station are now in possession of the camera.
