Cell phone smuggling techniques - A photo database
This is just a start - a photo collection of techniques used to smuggle cell phones inside.
With a little work this could be a really useful database. So, if you like the idea and want to see more, leave a comment and we'll go phone photo hunting.
Better still, do you have your own contraband phone photo? Does someone you know? E-mail it to the C1 editors and we'll feature it on this secure page.
