Shanghai railway police have confiscated more than 8,000 bootleg pornographic DVDs that were being transported under the guise of auto parts in the city's north suburb railway station.
Two men confessed they bought the discs in Guangzhou, capital of China's southern Guangdong Province. They had hoped to earn big money during next month's Spring Festival holiday period as more people will stay at home and watch DVDs.
On Thursday, police spotted the two young men loading boxes labeled as auto components. Upon inspection, they found the pirated porno DVDs.
Police confiscated all of the DVDs and detained the suspects.
The case is under further investigation.
