Woman Attempts To Smuggle Husband Out Of Jail In Suitcase

CHETUMAL, Mexico ~ (Otago Daily Times/AP) ~ Local police report that a woman was caught trying to smuggle her common-law husband out of a Mexican prison in a suitcase, following a conjugal visit.

Gerardo Campos, police spokesman for the Caribbean state of Quintana Roo, said the staff at the prison in the town of Chetumal noticed that 19-year-old Maria del Mar Arjona seemed nervous while leaving the jail and pulling a black, wheeled suitcase that seemed bulky and heavy. Campos said the guards checked her bag and inside they found inmate Juan Ramirez Tijerina curled up into a fetal position. Arjions had reportedly been at the jail on a conjugal visit with her common-law husband Tijerina.

Ramirez is currently serving a 20-year sentence from a 2007 conviction on a charge of illegal weapons possession. Arjona was immediately arrested and charges are pending.
