Chalk one up for the new full body scanners: A woman at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport was caught trying to smuggle 44 iPhones into Israel by stuffing them in her stockings under traditional Georgian clothing. Security officials noticed she was walking funny (because she had 44 iPhones in her stockings) and approached her. She said she wasn’t feeling well, and security said they could help her out, just as soon as she passed through the full-body scanner. She obliged, and was caught with the phones.
This is the 24th time the scanners have caught people trying to smuggle items into Israel since they were installed in October.
