How to Travel on a Budget: Arrest & Deportation

When looking to travel, there are a multitude of ticketing options: booking websites, and even travel blogs to help you get where you need to go. But the method of travel from this story is uncommon, and sadly does not come with a round-trip flight.

Looking to leave the country as soon as possible, 38-year-old Guadalupe Cruz-Vasquez walked into an Idaho police station and demanded to be arrested and deported. Seeing as how unorthodox this request was, the police officers denied him. They then asked him to leave, as he hadn’t committed any crime that warranted an arrest.

So what did Cruz-Vasquez do? He found a nearby squad car, smashed out the window, and took it for a spin, giving the police officers the reason they needed to arrest him.

Luckily for the police, there was no need for a high speed pursuit, seeing as the car ran out of gas and was easily tracked by a cell phone that was left inside it.

In the end, Cruz-Vasquez got his wish fulfilled: a one-way ticket out of the county.
