Guards bag prisoner in Mexico suitcase jailbreak

MEXICO CITY, (Reuters) – A Mexican prisoner hoped to  take a trip to freedom by packing himself into his girlfriend’s  suitcase.

But guards at the jail in the southeastern town of Chetumal  grew suspicious when the woman seemed nervous as she wheeled  out the bulging bag after a conjugal visit with the prisoner.

Opening the luggage, guards found Juan Ramirez folded into  the fetal position in his underpants and socks, a spokeswoman  for local federal police said on Tuesday.
