Smug­gler caught with 102 iPhones

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - CHINA -

A Hong Kong woman who taped 102 iPhones to her body was de­tained by cus­toms in­spec­tion of­fi­cials at a check­point in Shen­zhen’s Luohu dis­trict this month. Fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion found the woman also had 15 Tis­sot watches taped across her chest. Upon notic­ing the woman’s un­usu­ally bulky cloth­ing and strange walk­ing style, cus­toms of­fi­cers or­dered the woman to walk through an X-ray scan­ner, which sounded its alarm. iPhones, which are cheaper in Hong Kong than on the Chi­nese main­land, have long been a pop­u­lar item for smug­glers, of­fi­cers said.
