Gang of smugglers uses drones to illegally transport bags containing Apple iPhones and other smartphones worth about 80 million dollars across Chinese borders fenced with “two, 200 meter-long cables between buildings on either of the sides”.
This was made known to the state media by the Chinese customs officials, as they reported that it was their first time of experiencing such an advanced criminal activity with help of hi-tech in the Chinese border.
Customs officials estimated that about 15,000 Smartphones are moved across the border every night with drones by the criminals; this was discovered at the border between Shenzhen and Hong Kong, where a drone carrying a bag full of Smartphones was nabbed.
Regarding this; Chinese authorities ordered that every hi-tech drone in the country must be registered with the accurate details of the owners to reduce some of the criminal activities partaken with drones.
