article imageMexican attempts to escape from prison in girlfriend's suitcase

By Christopher Bates     Jul 5, 2011 in Crime
Chetumal - In possibly one of the most creative yet uncomfortable ways to escape from prison, a half-naked Mexican prisoner was recently caught curled up in his girlfriend's suitcase.
Juan Ramirez Tijerina was caught at a prison in Chetumal, Mexico, proving his flexibility in front of guards who were bewildered to say the very least.
Having been arrested in 2007, Tijerina is serving a 20 year sentence for possession of illegal weapons, and now awaits further charges alongside his girlfriend, Maria del Mar Arjona, following their attempt to break free. Cue Queen!
Police spokesman and witness, Gerado Campos, mentioned that Arjona looked nervous as she fled. According to one source, she tried to convince officers that the suitcase contained dirty laundry.
Tijerina was a member of the dangerous Sinaloa cartel, involved in such acts as drug trafficking, prostitution, distribution of alcoholic beverages, extortion and bribery of police and guards.
