Fugitive Found in Suitcase

Posted: Updated:

Warnings to "always check your baggage" took on new meaning for several federal agents serving a warrant in North Fargo today when they found their fugitive hiding in a fully-zipped suitcase.

The agents were searching for Misty Dawn Streed, who was wanted on a probation violation, and were exploring her apartment when a suitcase in her closet fell over, apparently of its own will.

"They heard it give a little grunt," says Deputy Chief Marshal Dan Orr. "Suitcases don't usually talk."

Orr says the woman's hair had become caught in the zipper, and she had to be cut out of the suitcase. If the suitcase hadn't fallen over -- allowing the agents to discover Streed -- she might have run out of air.
