Woman Found in Suitcase at Arizona Border Crossing

Tuesday, 07 Jan 2014 09:20 PM

Authorities say a smuggling attempt at the U.S.-Mexico border was thwarted when inspectors found a woman from Thailand inside a suitcase.

Customs and Border Protection agents discovered Pornkamol Mongkolsermsak, 48, while inspecting a Honda SUV entering the United States on Dec. 30 in Nogales, Ariz.

Mongkolsermsak, from Bangkok, was hidden under clothing in the large suitcase in the back of the vehicle, driven by a 56-year-old Phoenix man whose name hasn't been released.

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

Authorities didn't know whether she had an attorney yet.
