Man Tries Really Hard To Smuggle 94 IPhones Into China, Still Fails

Authorities in Hong Kong say they caught a man attempting to smuggle 94 iPhones into mainland China on Sunday by strapping the devices to his body.
Quote:
Customs police clued into the man due to his odd gait and posture, reports China's People's Daily online, which, judging by photos taken by customs officials, was understandably impacted.

A routine search of the man's luggage produced no contraband, but he set off a loud alarm when he attempted to walk through a metal detector, The Independent adds.

iPhones seized from the man include the 5s, 6 and 6 Plus models, all of which are available for purchase in China. However, per CNBC, the smartphones retail for a lower price in Hong Kong than in mainland China. The International Business Times estimates this man's contraband was worth more than 300,000 Yuan, or $48,000.

hahahahaha so true! Chinese workers get paid pennies to work 16/17hrs making the damn things. The only two things I can think of are

1. They are cheeper outside china after the conversion rate (like how Playstation 4s cost $1,800 in brazil)

2. They are stolen, a lot of the pick pocket gangs in europe send their phones to other nations. There was a documentary years ago by Donald MacIntyre where he put trackers in phones then deliberately got mugged, they tracked his phone to southern africa (IIRC) within days of it being stolen.
