That’s a lot of memory cards.

According to South China Morning Post (via That’s), the man was trying to enter Shenzhen, China from Hong Kong when he was caught with over 9,000 memory cards. CCTV reports that the border officials claim the suspect even tried to bribe them after he was caught red handed, er red-legged, whatever.

The memory cards are worth HK$118,000 (US$15,194), and as SCMP points out, goods sold in Hong Kong are cheaper than in mainland China.

Hours earlier, an elderly woman was also caught with over ten thousand memory cards strapped to her waist, SCMP reports. These two officials, I guess, counted them all.
