It Was Too Hot To File The Bars

Sunday, June 9th, 2013


If you’re planning a prison escape, Maria del Mar Arjona might not be the woman you should ask for advice. Maria and her common law husband, Juan Tijerina, planned a daring escape from a Mexican prison.

The cagey couple decided after a conjugal visit, they would leave her clothes in the trailer, Juan would curl up in the suitcase, and Maria would simply walk him out the door to freedom.

They had some bad luck from the start.  Maria had trouble pulling the escape vehicle and prison guards noticed it was very bulky and seemed to be moving in places.  When they stopped the suitcase and pulled the zipper, an embarrassed Juan tried to hide his face (this must have been the back-up plan) and Maria was immediately arrested.

A spokesman for police in the Caribbean state of Quintana Roo said the prison staff never saw an escape attempt “that was so stupid.”

It showed them if you’ve seen Juan,  you’ve seen them all.
