It began with a conjugal visit, and ended with a bold attempt at a prison break.

Nineteen-year-old Maria del Mar Arjona used the privacy of the conjugal visit room in a Mexican prison to stuff her common law husband Juan Ramirez Tijerina — who is serving a 20-year sentence for a 2007 conviction for illegal weapons possession — in a suitcase.

Unfortunately for the schemers, the staff at the Chetumal prison noticed that the suitcase was bulky and del Mar Arjona seemed nervous.

The contortionist con was returned to his cell, and del Mar Arjona was arrested, with charges pending.
