Just when you thought drug trafficking couldn’t get any less sexy, ‘the world’s most beautiful smuggler’ has now been arrested by Mexican authorities.
Ana Marie Hernandez allegedly controlled the coke scene in the American Midwest and has been on the run since 2013, when she pled guilty to charges of bribery and drug trafficking in a courtroom in El Paso, Texas, but was finally captured earlier this week in Chihuahua, Mexico.
The San Antonio Express-News reported that the 38-year-old would ‘use her good looks and wit to smuggle drugs’. DEA official Mike Vigil went on to say that attractive women are ‘highly coveted’ by cartel leaders. That’s no real surprise is it?
Hernandez, who is nicknamed ‘La Muñeca’ (The Doll), is believed to be part of the Sinaloa cartel, headed up by El Chapo, Joaquín Guzmán. After his arrest, Ana Marie Hernandez started running drugs for the Juarez Cartel and levelled up to become a ‘large-scale trafficker’ for Guzman’s Sinaloa. Law enforcement in fact believe she had something going with El Chapo.
The Mexican authorities started to step up their efforts of tracking down large-scale traffickers, after the ‘significant embarrassment’ of letting Cartel leader Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman escape in stunning fashion from a maximum security prison back in July.
Check out the footage below:
‘La Muñeca’ – who lived a flashy, cash-spending lifestyle – is now expected to be extradited back to the U.S. after her capture in Mexico this week.
One thing is for sure though, she will definitely be one of the most attractive mugshots on their police database.
