A man has been extradited from Victoria and charged after allegedly filming a teenage girl without her consent.

In May 2020, detectives from Monaro Police District commenced an investigation, following reports hidden cameras and devices were found concealed in a home near Canberra.

Inquiries revealed a teenage girl had been filmed without her consent over a six-year period.

Following inquiries, with the assistance of Victoria Police, a 67-year-old man was arrested in Bentleigh East, Victoria, on Tuesday 17 March 2021.

NSW Police investigators travelled to Victoria yesterday (Wednesday 18 March 2021) and sought the man’s extradition to NSW at Moorabbin Magistrate’s Court.

The man was escorted to Queanbeyan Police Station, where he was charged with five counts of aggravated film person in private act without consent.

It’s alleged that between 2014 and 2020, the man concealed multiple hidden camera devices and cameras in rooms frequented by the girl, who was then aged between 11 and 17.

The man and teen are known to each other.

He was refused bail to appear in Queanbeyan Local Court today (Thursday 18 March 2021).
