Man arrested at Chinese border with 94 iPhones strapped to his body

But his plan was foolproof! Foolproof, we tell you!

WE DON’T KNOW how he thought he would get away with this, but good effort, we guess?

A man travelling from Hong Kong to China was caught attempting to smuggle 94 iPhones into the country – on his person.

What does that look like? Well, like this:

Customs officials arrested the man, who had attached the iPhones (mostly new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models) to his body using plastic bags and masking tape.

As reported on Chinese website Sina News, officials stopped the man when they saw him walking strangely. Six iPhones strapped to your crotch would do that to you.

According to Time Magazine, smuggling iPhones is a common enough practice in mainland China as electronics are more expensive there than in Hong Kong.

This guy needs to come up with a better method. Just saying.
