Photos: Miss Sinaloa Laura Zuniga Caught In Anti-Drug Raid
by Mike Baron

Laura Zuniga, A Mexican beauty queen and international pageant winner, has been detained by police along with suspected drug traffickers who possessed assault rifles and cash.

Zuniga is a 23-year-old Beauty Queen and Miss Sinaloa from the marijuana-producing Mexican state.

She was reportedly detained with seven men at a military checkpoint in Guadalajara, according to Reuters reports.

"She is the beauty queen of Sinaloa and was aboard an SUV with the weapons and several of the men," said a police spokesman from western Jalisco state, home to Guadalajara.

According to the spokesman, police and soldiers at the checkpoint on the outskirts of Mexico's second-biggest city were tipped off that traffickers would be moving through the area Monday night.

"No one expected this young woman to be aboard, along with more than a dozen cell phones,
lots of cash, pistols, bullets and two rifles," the spokesman said.

Zuniga won the Miss Sinaloa title in July and was to compete in the Miss International 2009 pageant next year in Asia.

She was named "Queen of Hispanic America 2008" in a contest in Bolivia.

Zuniga is the latest well-known person to be linked to drug traffickers this year in Mexico, where President Felipe Calderon has been battling powerful cartels with soldiers and federal police. More photos here.
