WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - The Latest on the woman arrested at President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago club (all times local):

2:30 p.m.

A federal prosecutor says a Chinese woman who was arrested for illegally entering President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago club had a device to detect hidden cameras in her hotel room when Secret Service agents searched it.

Speaking at Yujing Zhang's bail hearing Monday in West Palm Beach, Florida, prosecutor Rolando Garcia says agents also found U.S. and Chinese currency in her room, along with nine USB drives and five USB cards. She's charged with lying to a federal agent and illegal entering.

Secret Service agents arrested the 32-year-old woman March 30 after they say she gained admission by falsely telling a checkpoint she was a member.

Inside, they say she told a front-desk clerk she was there for a nonexistent Chinese American event. She was arrested after agents say they found her carrying four cellphones, an external hard drive and a thumb drive with computer malware installed.
