An elderly woman was caught trying to smuggle 216 iPhones across the border inside empty beer bottles, reports M.I.C Gadget.
An old lady was transporting a number of unwanted beer bottles from Hong Kong to Shenzhen, by crossing the Sha Tau Kok border. Usually, those empty beer bottles can be collected for recycling and earn you a few pennies. The officers from the Chinese custom were feeling suspicious while checking the empty bottles, because some of the bottles weight a little bit heavier. And they had found some taping in the middle part of the bottle, while a thin line-gap can be seen. Surprisingly the beer bottle was professionally cut into half and loaded with 3 iPhones. The officers carefully separated all the jointed-bottles and a total of 216 set iPhone 4/4s had been seized.
This bust is even bigger than the last one where a man was caught trying to smuggle 170 iPhones by taping them to his body.
