It’s the opposite of luxury travel.

A man was busted trying to cross into the United State border with a woman hidden in his suitcase, according to ABC 15.

A 56-year-old Phoenix man was stopped by the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol and officers opened a suitcase in the back of his Honda SUV and they made the shocking discovery of a 48-year-old Thai woman “hidden underneath a pile of clothes.”

He was trying to enter the country at the Port of Nogales.

The woman is reportedly facing deportation charges.
