You may think a man wearing a belt made of iPhones is trying to show off, but in this case he was trying to smuggle them over the border.

A man from Hong Kong was caught smuggling 146 iPhones by Customs at Luohu checkpoint in Shenzhen, South China's Guangdong province on March 6.

He had strapped 126 iPhones to his waist and 20 more to his shanks in an attempt to smuggle them from Hong Kong to Shenzhen, Guangzhou-based Yangcheng Evening News reported Wednesday.
