A man traveling from Hong Kong to China was noticed by authorities in Futian Port to look a little odd. They described him as having a "weird walking posture, joint stiffness, muscle tension..." so they pulled him aside for some quick checks.

The result was 94 iPhone's strapped to his body, hindering his movement just a touch. After arriving to check-in with two plastic bags, nothing suspicious was found, however after walking through the metal detector a few warning bells were sounded.

I'm not exactly sure how he thought he was going to get away with it, but maybe next time he should try something a little different.
