Woman puts herself in suitcase to see boyfriend

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Police say a 50-year-old Oregon woman is in trouble because of her relationship baggage - but it's not the emotional kind.

Kola J. McGrath was arrested Monday for trespassing after workers at her boyfriend's downtown Portland apartment complex discovered she had been sneaking into the building by hiding in a large pink suitcase that he lugged around.

The Oregonian reports McGrath is 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighs 96 pounds. She was banned from the building last year for breaking a fire extinguisher case during an argument.

Police were notified when a caller reported a man had kidnapped a woman, placed her in a pink suitcase and taken her to the apartment building.

Officers then searched 52-year-old Curtis T. Lowe's apartment and found McGrath hiding in a closet.
