Dude proves he ain't all that bright after getting caught smuggling 1,000 diamonds in his shoes

A young man in China was caught trying to smuggle 1,000 diamonds from Hong Kong into mainland China with his shoes.

According to Shanghaiist, the smuggler first caught the attention of customs officers because he had been walking in a bizarre fashion.

Said an official:

"The man was suspicious as he sometimes tiptoed. 

"When he found that we were looking at him, he quickly shifted to a normal walking posture."

212.9 carats of diamonds were found in small bags concealed under the insoles of his shoes.
