Mexico's Miss Hispanic America Arrested with Arms, Cash
2 AR-15 assault rifles, three pistols, nine ammunition clips, more than 600 rounds of ammunition of different calibers, 16 cell phones and about $53,000 in cash.




























































MEXICO CITY -- Beauty queen Laura Elena Zuņiga Huizar was arrested along with seven men while carrying arms and thousands of dollars in cash in the western Mexican state of Jalisco, police said Tuesday.

The state's police chief, Francisco Alejandro Solorio, told reporters that the eight suspects, who were traveling in two SUVs, were arrested Monday night at a checkpoint established by army troops and police in the Guadalajara suburb of Zapopan.

Police seized two AR-15 assault rifles, three pistols, nine ammunition clips, more than 600 rounds of ammunition of different calibers, 16 cell phones and about $53,000 in cash from the suspects.

The 23-year-old Zuņiga Huizar is a native of Cuiliacan, the capital of Sinaloa state, which is the birthplace of the likenamed drug cartel considered one of Mexico's most powerful criminal organizations.

Zuņiga Huizar was crowned Miss Sinaloa in July and also won the Miss Hispanoamericana contest held in Bolivia last month.

Jalisco police chief Solorio said the beauty queen told officers she and her companions planned to go on a shopping trip to Bolivia and Colombia.
