A woman was caught trying to sneak her common-law-husband out of a Mexican prison in a suitcase following a visit.
Staff at the prison in Chetumal in Quintana Roo state noticed the woman seemed nervous and was pulling a bulky, wheeled suitcase.
Prison guards checked the bag of 19-year-old Maria del Mar Arjona and found inmate Juan Ramirez Tijerina curled up inside in the fetal position.
The prisoner is serving a 20-year sentence for a 2007 conviction for illegal weapons possession.
Arjona was arrested and charges are pending.
Security at Mexican state prisons is notoriously lax. Jailbreaks are common, inmates are often found to be directing criminal operations from behind bars, and corrupt guards are often found to be involved.
