It turns out that even though iPhone’s are made in China, they aren’t too cheap over there. Which I assume is why this plonker got caught trying to smuggle 94 of them in by strapping them to his body.
Travelling from Shenzhen, the guy was noticeably acting weird in the airport. He was walking really uptight and stiff. When customs checked the bags that he was carrying, they found nothing suspicious. Then, unsurprisingly, he set off a metal detector, so customs searched him.
Photo’s released from customs show 94 iPhones strapped to his body, with a total value of 300,000 yuan (£32,000).
The guy has a history of smuggling, and has been held in custody for further questioning.
