Man smuggling thousands of memory cards caught by custom officers
A man carrying thousands of mobile phone memory cards illegally by sticking them to his body was caught at Hong Kong. He was trying to smuggle 9,000 mobile phone memory cards on Friday. The estimated value of memory cards is over 16,000 dollars.
Not only this, the smuggler also tried to bribe the custom officials to let him go forward in exchange of 500 dollars. This is not a first case of somebody being caught while trying to smuggle stuff through tapping it to the body.
Just a few weeks ago, a somewhat similar situation happened when a man allegedly carrying 105 smartphones strapped to his body was caught at Karachi airport. In past, there also have been several cases of people being caught with iPhones strapped to bodies.
