She was arrested as she arrived at the church and was hauled before the Public Prosecutor’s Office in her white wedding dress.
Her would-be husband, Clemente N, nicknamed ‘Ratón’, managed to escape and is wanted on the same charges.
The couple are accused of extorting local chicken merchants in Toluca near Mexico City, Mexico.
The authorities said six other people have been arrested in connection with the scam.
The group is also suspected of kidnapping four workers from a poultry shop.
One man, named Santiago N, is accused of “transporting the victims in a Ford Explorer pickup truck”, according to the state Prosecutor’s Office.
They all reportedly have links to the criminal organisation La Familia Michoacana.
The authorities said: “The fight against extortion of poultry and egg businesses has caused losses of over £37.2 million for criminal groups.
“By failing to receive £16.8 million for foiled operations and the confiscation of 24 properties valued at £20.5 million.”
The investigation is ongoing.Leave a comment
