TOURISTS in Spain have been warned after a man was arrested for allegedly hiding cameras in a town to catch people, including children, peeing on camera.
The police discovered several hidden devices in the streets of Malaga and even at a fairground.
Police launched an investigation in the early hours of Monday morning after two officers spotted a man acting suspiciously in the Calle de la Bandola area around 2.15am.
He was reportedly constantly scanning the area before repeatedly bending down and getting up.
As officers approached him, he tried to hide an item that turned out to be a camera, reports Andalucia Today.
He was arrested after they searched the area with flashlights and found five cameras hidden in spots regularly used by people to urinate.
Police officers questioned the 43-year-old and he admitted the cameras belonged to him.
During a search of his backpack, two mobile phones, two other cameras, two hard drives, a flashlight, an MP4, five USB sticks and 49 memory cards were confiscated.
Police also searched two properties linked to the suspect and found several miniature cameras, as well as a laptop, tablet, memory cards and chargers – which were confiscated.
They also found a device set up on the balcony to film an alleyway below.
Police officers searched the alley and discovered another camera hidden in a hole in the wall.
Police say a holiday home in Real de la Feria was also searched, where they found “child pornography consisting of photographs of boys and girls urinating in different places and in different positions” on a mobile phone.
The National Police investigated and the man was charged with “crimes against sexual freedom and reparation”.
