CityNews – The U.S. Customs and Border Protection department reported that on December 30th they found an unusual package, even by their standards: a Thai woman stuffed inside a suitcase amongst piles of clothes.

The 56 year old woman was found trying to get into the US from Mexico at a border crossing in Arizona when the vehicle in which she was travelling was pulled over and searched. Officials told Reuters, “Rarely do we see something like this. You can imagine the (border) officers’ surprise when they came upon this woman crammed inside a suitcase, but there she was.”

The woman was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
