Man Tries to Escape Prison in Suitcase

A woman in Mexico attempted to break her husband out of prison by hiding him in a suitcase after a conjugal visit. Authorities noticed, however, that the suitcase looked bulky as she was leaving and stopped to check it. Juan Ramirez Tijerina, serving a 20-year sentence for illegal weapons possession, was curled in the fetal position inside. The woman, 19-year-old Maria del Mar Arjona, has been arrested, and charges are pending.
