Maybe he needed to make a call...

Lviv oblast: Pole caught smuggling 9,000 mobile phones

The State security service SBU seized a shipment of nine thousand contraband mobile telephones in Lviv oblast.

A Polish man attempted to smuggle the cell phones into the country by hiding them in his mini-bus. The value of the contraband phones was estimated to be six million hryvnia – that’s more than a million US dollars. It’s the biggest catch of bootleg phones so far this year. The Pole was caught deep inside the country, so investigators want to determine whether or not he had help crossing the border with such a large cache.
