Cross-forest pulley system built with UAV.
Smugglers used UAVs to pull ropes, build a system of pulleys to transport goods across the border between Hong Kong and Guangdong province in order to move goods in trade. However, a patrol discovered unusual noises in the woods and found a set of equipment. Checking the unloading point found 13 boxes of goods. Not only that, the smugglers also dig an underground sewer system in the border area to cross the isolation net, support the movement of smuggled goods.
The smuggled iPhones 12 were lined up in long rows for tallying.
After tallying, 13 cases of smuggled goods contained 1,145 iPhones and 518 chips, with a value of more than 9 million yuan each (about $ 11 million). Smugglers have used mountains and forests as refuge and hid smuggling equipment to avoid police patrols.
It is known that the iPhone version for the Hong Kong market of Apple is different from the version used in mainland China. This version will not be able to use 5G network when using dual SIM card mode. However, due to the significant difference in the selling price, users are hardly interested in this issue.
