Great plan. I can't believe it didn't work. The photo is the best part...and screams for a caption. Anyone?
Wife Arrested After Trying to Smuggle Husband out of Jail in Suitcase
CHETUMAL, Mexico (KTLA) -- A woman has been arrested after police say she tried to smuggle her husband out of jail in a suitcase.
The woman, who is the man's common law wife, had been allowed to visit the man for a conjugal visit, police in Mexico say.
Prison guards noticed something was wrong when she appeared to be nervous and was pushing a suitcase that was "overstuffed."
Chetumal prison spokesman Gerardo Campos said guards checked the bag and found the inmate, identified as Juan Ramirez-Tijerina, inside the bag curled up in a fetal position.
19-year-old Maria del Mar Arjona was arrested and may face prison time herself, police say.
Ramirez is serving a 20-year sentence for a 2007 conviction for illegal weapons possession.
