The original price of each iPhone 12 Pro Max was reported to be CNY 1,000. The money that Tang got after trading off the two iPhone units, was spent on shopping. Like a man who has won a lottery, Tang hired a BMW car for a fun ride at CNY 600 per day. He even bought himself new clothes that were expensive.
But his excitement was short-lived. The local police recovered these four units from the places they were. The politico seized the rest of the iPhone 12 Pro Max units, which were ten in number, and nabbed Tang.
