THREE MEN ARRESTED FOR ATTEMPTING TO SMUGGLE 370 iPHONEs INTO CHINA


Three Fishermen arrested by the police for attempting to smuggle 370 iPhone 6s worth two million yuan (£228,000) into China.




The police had decided to stop the boat in waters close to the city of Shenzhen after they noticed that it was travelling suspiciously fast and noticed that there
were a number of dead fish on-board.


Officials could tell that the men were particularly nervous and took a more detailed look at the boat once it was stopped. When they checked the buckets of fish, they found 370 iPhones hidden among some fish carcasses.

Smuggling electrical goods from Hong Kong into mainland China is a recurring problem. Electronic goods from Hong Kong are cheaper then they are across the border and many people are found trying to sneak a few items in.

The three smugglers confessed to the crime, saying that they had just finished a fishing trip when they were approached by some smugglers who offered them 1,000 yuan (£114) each to deliver the phones. The case is now under investigation.
