Former Jerusalem mayoral candidate Moshe Lion was caught by customs at Ben Gurion Airport trying to enter Israel with "an unusual amount of clothes," Channel 10 reported on Monday.

Lion, who lost to incumbent mayor Nir Barkat, failed to declare the clothes.

Customs representatives said the amount of clothes was larger than legally allowed to bring in without paying customs.

Customs will have to decide whether or not to press charges against Lion.

Lion, who was released to his home, said the clothes are for private use for him and his family members, and that if necessary, he will pay the required fees.
