Less than a week after the IRS seized more than 370 iPhones on a bus from Paraguay, the Federal Highway Police arrested last Friday (27/9) a pair that carried another load of smuggled iPhones 11 – this time on Feira de Santana (BA), 115km from Salvador.
With the two men were 17 units of the latest generation iPhones purchased in Paraguay, in different colors and models, and with all their original accessories. The PRF estimates that, together, they were worth about R $ 150 thousand.
The duo owns some electronics stores in Aracaju (SE). They were arrested in flagrante delicto for the crime of misappropriation and taken to the Judiciary Police Station in Feira de Santana.
