Ben-Gurion: Paris Passenger Caught with 50 Smartphones

Customs officers at Ben-Gurion International Airport foiled, Monday, an attempt by a French citizen to smuggle 50 smartphones into the country. The suspect told investigators he did not intend to declare the phones, and it is suspected that he intended to sell them to new immigrants from France without paying taxes on them.

The Ramle Magistrates Court released him under restrictive conditions, including a ban on his leaving Israel for 30 days.
