Beauty Queen Detained by Mexican Police

A Mexican beauty queen and seven men were taken into custody Monday after being found traveling in vehicles containing weapons and cash.

23-year-old Laura Zuniga and her companions were caught with two cars that contained AR-15 assault rifles, handguns, cartridges and $50,000 in cash. They are all facing investigation by a federal organized crime team, who believe that they may be involved in drug trafficking. Zuniga’s boyfriend, Angel Orlando Garcia Urquiza, is reportedly the brother of “one of the greatest capos of narcotraffic.” When paraded before the news media, Zuniga attempted to hide her famous face, which once won her the title “Hispanoamerican Queen 2008.” [CNN]
