PORTLAND, Ore. — 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 the man was sneaking her into the building by hiding her in a large rolling suitcase. She was banned from the building last year for breaking a fire extinguisher case during an argument.

The Oregonian reports ( ) McGrath is 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighs 96 pounds.

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.
