Prison guards in the Mexican prison of Chetumal in Quintana Roo state caught a woman trying to smuggle her husband out of prison on Saturday (July 2) in a suitcase.
Nineteen-year-old Maria del Mar Arjona Rivero was arrested after the guards inspected her suitcase and found her husband, Edwin Valdemar Artiaga Perez, inside.
According to a statement issued by the Quintana Roo state government, Rivero had been at the prison for a conjugal visit with her husband. As she attempted to leave through the main door, the guards noted that her suitcase appeared to be unusually full and that she was acting nervously.
When they searched Rivero and her belongings, they found Valdemar folded up inside the luggage.
Valdemar was returned to his cell and Rivero was placed under arrest.
The statement did not say why Valdemar was in prison.
