Woman found in suitcase at Arizona border crossing

NOGALES, Ariz. — 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 48-year-old Pornkamol
Mongkolsermsak 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 immediately know if she has a lawyer yet.
