Chinese smugglers have been caught transporting a host of Apple goods over a zip-line into Hong Kong in a bid to profit from tax differences.

Using a crossbow, the perpetrators fired a fishing line from a skyscraper in Shenzhen over the Sha Tau Kok river and into a small house in Hong Kong.

The team then filled nylon bags full of iPhone 4s and iPad 2s, before pulleying them across ahead of daybreak, Gizchina reports.

Chinese smugglers caught on the Apple line

Unfortunately for the would-be profiteers, someone spotted the line and custom officers swooped, confiscating more than 50 devices worth 300,000 Yuan (£28k). Little supplies there then.

If only the smugglers had attached plastic cups to the end of each line, they could have warned one another about a police bust instantly. ®
