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

3:25 p.m.

A prosecutor says the FBI is still investigating whether a Chinese woman accused of lying to illegally enter President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago club in Florida is a spy.

Speaking during Yujing Zhang's bail hearing Monday afternoon, prosecutor Rolando Garcia said they weren't making allegations of spying at this time but there are "a lot of questions that remain to be answered."

Zhang is charged with lying to a federal agent and illegal entering. Her bail hearing was adjourned until next week and she'll be held until then.

The 32-year-old woman was arrested March 30 after Secret Service agents say she gained admission by falsely telling a checkpoint she was a member and was going to swim. She was arrested after agents say they found her carrying four cellphones, an external hard drive and a thumb drive with computer malware installed.

Yujing Zhang's hearing was held Monday afternoon in West Palm Beach, Florida, and is expected to resume next Monday. She's charged with lying to a federal agent and illegal entering.

The 32-year-old woman was arrested March 30 after Secret Service agents say she gained admission by falsely telling a checkpoint she was a member and was going to swim.
