'Gun Haul' Beauty Queen Arrested


A Mexican beauty queen has been arrested with suspected gang members in a truck filled with guns and ammunition.  Laura Zuniga was arrested on Monday at a military checkpoint in Zapopan, just outside Guadalajara.

Earlier this year the 23-year-old was named Miss Sinaloa 2008.

A police spokesman said Zuniga was riding in one of two trucks where soldiers found a large stash of weapons, including assault rifles, 9mm handguns and $53,300 in US currency.

Zuniga told police she was planning on travelling to Bolivia and Colombia with the seven men to go shopping.

When the former schoolteacher won Miss Sinaloa in July she gave an impassioned speech about how society should value women more.

Zuniga is from the Pacific coast state of Sinaloa, the home of the powerful cartel of the same name.

It is not known whether she and the men are being investigated for drug ties.
