Grab her by membership card?

Prosecutors say they found multiple electronic devices in her hotel room, including a signal detector that can seek out and detect hidden cameras, another cell phone, nine USB drives and five SIM cards. There were also several credit cards in her name in the room--at the upscale Colony Hotel a block from the beach. She also had more than $8,000 in US and Chinese currency, with $7,500 of it in $100 bills.
Prosecutors have called Zhang a flight risk because she has next to no ties to the US. The federal magistrate judge who held the hearing Monday will decide next week if Zhang should stay in jail until she is tried, or be released to live in the US as she awaits trial.

Zhang, 32, has not yet entered a plea to the criminal charges she faces, and prosecutors said they plan to formally indict her in the coming week.
"She lies to everyone she encounters," prosecutor Rolando Garcia said.
"Her ties are all in China," he later added.

I heard the thumb drive with Trojans as soon as inserted in a computer started its mission of spitting out Trojans.

Good thing she didn't get pulled over with all that cash or she might have ended up as an episode of "Annals Of The Police State..."

Except for the amount of cash, that is pretty much how I travel.
And many places in the world credit cards are not an option, you do need cash....

Only 2 sim cards, today, 6 USB drives, one travel router, I also used to carry a cell jammer, now a signal detector.
It is not a big deal, almost a routine item all over Asia,
In China sim cards can be very regional, preloaded with certain number of minutes, bought from a street vendor at a deep discount, so she could have 2-4 cards for China alone, one for US, maybe another or two for other countries if she was traveling elsewhere.
With T-mobile I do not need to buy sim cards for Europe, but for Croatia (one sim card) and I still have an unused one for China, just in case. But in the old days I had 3 cards for China and 5 for Europe as a standard travel pack.

All flash drives, every single one bought on the street or electronic markets needed reformat, all bought pre loaded with malware...

This is starting to remind me of those cases where the cops announce that an alleged murderer had a porn-stash. Not especially relevant to the alleged crime, just piling on whatever they can to push public-perception where they want it to go.

They caught an intruder with a fishy story at Drumpf's golf club. Why isn't that enough?

They were so anxious to imply that she had spyware on a flash drive that they revealed themselves to be total imbeciles at such basic cyber-security that there are warnings against what they did in the annual training materials for every government employee and contractor in the nation.

Why are they trying so hard to make the case to the public? Have we fallen so far that the entirety of Homeland Security is filled with nothing but dumb toadies more interested in impressing their demented boss than doing their jobs well?

So, per max's cogent commentary on the OP, she was experienced enough to have the typical gadget arsenal of someone who travels widely in China. But not experienced enough to wipe the drives of ubiquitous, every-body-knows-it's-there malware. Not a bullet-proof alibi, but Hanlon's razor still in the running.
