Mexican Man Attempts Prison Escape ... in a Suitcase

I'm wondering how long the authorities made this idiot stay stuffed into the suitcase so they could take photos. Well, he won't be packing his bags any time soon after this botched escape.
Police say a woman was caught trying to sneak her common-law-husband out of a Mexican prison in a suitcase following a conjugal visit.

A spokesman for police in the Caribbean state of Quintana Roo says staff at the prison in Chetumal noticed that the woman seemed nervous and was pulling a black, wheeled suitcase that looked bulky.

Spokesman Gerardo Campos said Monday that prison guards checked the bag of 19-year-old Maria del Mar Arjona 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.
How is it the woman is allowed to wheel a suitcase in to begin with?

She needed the suitcase to bring in her bribe money.  Apparently it wasn't enough.
