An inmate Juan Ramirez Tijerina was caught trying to sneak out a Mexican prison in a suitcase following a conjugal visit.

A spokesman for police in the state of Quintana Roo says staff at the prison in Chetumal noticed that 19-year-old Maria del Mar Arjona seemed nervous and was pulling a black, wheeled suitcase that looked bulky.

Spokesman Gerardo Campos said Monday that prison guards checked the bag and found inmate Juan Ramirez Tijerina curled up inside in the fetal position.

Ramirez is serving a 20-year sentence for a 2007 conviction for illegal weapons possession.

Arjona was arrested and charges are pending.
