Man Tries to Sneak into Spain Disguised as Car Seat

Officers call his efforts "unique and innovative"

A man who skillfully attempted to conceal himself inside a car seat was busted trying to sneak into Spain illegally last week, the Daily Mail reported.

The 20-year-old immigrant from the West African country of Guinea reportedly went to great lengths to hide from border patrol at the Beni-Enzar crossing between Morocco and the Spanish enclave of Melilla. He and the two other Moroccan men with him appeared to have pulled apart the car’s passenger seat cushioning, leaving only the metal frame, the Mail reported. The man then slid in behind the caging and one of his co-smugglers sat on top of him, the paper reported.

Even police who detained the trio had to hand it to them, calling their efforts to get by undetected “unique and innovative.”

The two Moroccans were arrested for people smuggling. The man in a car seat disguise was detained, brought before a judge and kicked out of Melilla, according to the Mail.

Don’t know if he got the memo—not much opportunity in Spain these days.

Would it be racist to make some joke about the car having a ‘black leather interior’?

Was the seat made of out rich, Corinthian leather?

Reminds me of the short story "The Human Chair," by Edogawa Rampo - a must-read.

I remember an illegal was caught trying the same scheme at Tijuana crossing some years back.My bet is they have heat signature scanners in place for just such a thing.

At least he didn’t try to mail himself to a girlfriend as a romantic gesture. That can be close to fatal.

Must have been really embarassed to admit he was trying to sneak into Spain...I mean, you have to be Moron Level 5 to not realize that Spain is an economic basket-case.

Compared to Guinea it sounds like paradise.

Illegals sneak into the United States disguised as politically protected “undocumented” laborers.
