A desperate plan hatched out of love, caused a Portland, Oregon woman to get arrested.
Kola McGrath had been sneaking into her boyfriend’s apartment in a pink suitcase. About a year ago, she got into trouble with building management for breaking a fire extinguisher, so she was banned from the complex. That’s why she would hide in a giant suitcase; and the boyfriend would just roll her in.
“It’s not what you think,” McGrath said. “You put your head under a pillow or a blanket and it is just like that.”
Neighbors said they had often noticed McGrath’s boyfriend hauling the pink suitcase in and out of the building. They thought it was suspicious, but never would have thought he was smuggling his girlfriend inside.
Police arrested McGrath for trespassing because she had been warned to stay out of the building. She has since been released from jail, and is now trying to find another plan to visit her boyfriend.
