Victoria’s Secret supermodel and professional hottie Bar Refaeli was busted at Tel Aviv’s international airport this week for trying to bring in her newly purchased iPad without declaring it at customs. Items brought into Israel worth more than around $200 are subject to duties. Refaeli now has to shell out in $170 in fines to get the device back.
Refaeli told Israel’s Channel 10 TV that she had an iPad in a suitcase that was lost in transit. She said she didn’t declare the iPad upon entrance to Israel for a brief commercial appearance.
Israel lifted its ban on the popular tablet computer two weeks ago. The restrictions were initially imposed over concerns the Apple Inc. gadget’s wireless signal could disrupt other devices.
