Bombshell influencer Gaby Castillo arrested on suspicion of drugs and fraud offences
Cops found one million Mexican pesos in cash, as well as hundreds of bags of suspected cocaine and herbal cannabis
An online influencer and singer has been arrested in Mexico on gang-related fraud and drugs charges.
Gaby Castillo (26), who sings using the stage name Briela Sans, and who has over 763,000 followers on Instagram, was arrested after she was suspected for being a member of the Union Tepito gang.
The pink-haired model, who has acquired a huge following with her raunchy snaps in lingerie, bikinis and selfies from the gym, is also suspected by Mexican authorities of taking compromising pictures of acquaintances and using the images to blackmail them.
The arrest happened in Mexico City on Monday while she was travelling in a luxury car with Jose Hareff Soto Jiminez (35), whose Los Soto crime gang fell under the watchful eye of Mexican authorities who suspect the gang of stealing luxury vehicles and selling them on.
The online star has also been romantically linked to Oscar Andres Flores Ramirez, who goes by the alias El Lunares, and is currently spending a 20-year-sentence behind bars for murder, organised crime and drug peddling.
When the black SUV was stopped, cops found one million Mexican pesos (€43,000) in cash in the car, as well as hundreds of bags of suspected cocaine and herbal cannabis.
A firearm was also found in the vehicle which was allegedly purchased back in February with a fake cheque.
The Mexican authorities continue to investigate case.
