McAllen, Texas Customs inspectors in Laredo caught a 31-year-old Mexican woman trying to enter the U.S. hidden inside a suitcase.

Customs and Border Protection says on Thursday it arrested 29-year-old Maria Candelaria Moreno, from Milwaukee, Wis. She was driving a Ford Explorer. Also arrested was Ricardo Moreno Esparza, a passenger who's a Mexican citizen.

They were charged with aiding and abetting an illegal entry.

The woman hidden in the suitcase in their vehicle was processed for expedited return to Mexico. Officials didn't have any details on the unidentified woman's size but said after she was taken out of the suitcase, she had an elevated temperature and received medical services.
