Customs officers found more than clothes when they inspected a suitcase in the back of a vehicle at the Port of Nogales last week. 

A 56-year-old man from Phoenix was stopped for further inspection of his vehicle while crossing the border on Dec. 30 and when officers opened a suitcase in the back of a Honda SUV, they found a 48-year-old woman underneath clothes, according to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection News Release. 

The woman is a Thai national, the release said. 

The SUV was seized.
