Bride Arrested in Extortion Scheme, Groom Evades Authorities

The joint operation leading to Nancy N.’s arrest took place last month, just as she was preparing to exchange vows with Clemente N., alias “Mouse.” Despite successfully apprehending the bride, authorities were unable to capture the groom.

The couple was part of a larger group accused of extorting chicken merchants in Toluca, near Mexico City. The group was also suspected of kidnapping four workers from a poultry shop in Toluca, with one suspect, Santiago N., allegedly involved in transporting the kidnapped victims in an Explorer-type truck.

Mexico state prosecutors released photos of the suspects involved in the extortion scheme, along with a video montage featuring Nancy N. in handcuffs, still dressed in her wedding gown. The evidence presented included images of the alleged extortion activities.

According to authorities, the suspects have ties to the La Familia Michoacana drug cartel. This criminal organization was recently blamed for a drone attack in Guerrero that resulted in at least six fatalities.

Individuals with aliases such as “Chicken” (Misael N.) and Nabor N., identified as a “main hoarder and controller of the chicken and egg trade,” were allegedly key figures in the extortion activities controlled by the cartel.
