In a shocking turn of events, Alondra Mercado Campos, the former Miss Bolivia Mundo 2020 and Miss Charm Bolivia, has been thrown into Trinidad Women’s Prison in Beni, Bolivia. Her shapely arm is now adorned with a less glamorous accessory: handcuffs. The 22-year-old beauty queen is facing some serious accusations of gun trafficking, as well as being linked to a drug case involving her elusive boyfriend.

The local news outlet Semana reported that Mercado Campos was apprehended on suspicion of gun trafficking following a raid by Bolivia’s Special Force to Fight Drug Trafficking (FLECN). The raid uncovered a large stash of firearms and ammunition in the condominium shared by Mercado Campos and her boyfriend. Looks like Miss Bolivia was involved in a lot more than just waving and looking pretty.
During a recent courtroom drama, a judge decided to keep Mercado Campos behind bars for 30 days, deeming her a flight risk. The prosecutors are anxiously waiting for the results of forensic tests on her BMW SUV to determine if she has also been dabbling in the drug trade. If they find any evidence, it looks like Miss Bolivia could be in for an extended stay.
And speaking of her boyfriend, Andres Vasquez, he’s currently playing hide and seek with the authorities after bolting during a drug raid at the couple’s love nest in November. It turns out he’s wanted on a drug-trafficking warrant, and rumor has it that he’s quite the elusive fellow.
If the plot wasn’t thick enough, investigators suspect that Mercado Campos might be connected to a drug-trafficking ring led by her boyfriend. They even found incriminating videos on her confiscated cell phone showing the two lovebirds partying it up with some of the confiscated weapons from the earlier raid. Looks like Miss Bolivia has a soft spot for bad boys and illegal activities.
The scandalous twist in this sordid tale is the picturesque imagery shared on Mercado Campos’ social media accounts. It turns out that behind the sultry snaps of the stylish brunette in bikinis and evening gowns lies a potentially dark life involving illegal activities. Maybe Miss Bolivia’s Instagram game wasn’t just for the ‘likes’ after all.
