A "woman sneak U.S. suitcase" headline is hitting the Internet after a woman was found in the back of a car being smuggled across the U.S.-Mexico border. ABC News published a report Jan. 8 about a woman from Thailand being stuffed into a suitcase that was placed underneath clothing. A man was driving the Honda that she was in the back seat of. Border officials thwarted the smuggling efforts when they realized a live human being was inside a piece of luggage.

The report stated that Customs and Border Protection agents found Pornkamol Mongkolsermsak, 48, while inspecting a Honda SUV that was entering the U.S. on Dec. 30 in Nogales, Ariz. The woman was part of a U.S. sneak suitcase attempt -- one that would be hard to pull off for anyone.

Mongkolsermsak is from Bangkok and manged to stay in a large suitcase in a car that was being driven by a 56-year-old man from Phoenix. He has not been identified in this incident.

Customs and Border Protection spokesman Victor Brabble said that Mongkolsermsak is being charged "with re-entry after deportation."

There are all sorts of methods people use to get past the U.S.-Mexico border. This "woman sneak U.S. suitcase" story is certainly up there with one of the more crazy ones. It appears her extreme efforts did not work, however.
