Illegal immigrant caught at U.S. border hidden inside suitcase

- The Washington Times - Wednesday, January 8, 2014

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials stumbled upon a odd smuggling plot recently when they discovered a woman attempting to cross the U.S.-Mexico border — stuffed inside a suitcase.

Pornkamol Mongkolsermsak, a 48-year-old Thai national, was with a man driving a Honda SUV that was pulled over for a secondary inspection on Dec. 30, according to CNN. Miss Mongkolsermsak was somehow able to contort herself into the suitcase under a layer of clothing.

The identity of the driver who aided her in the illegal crossing was not provided by CBP.
