Head B_itch In Charge

Blessed with charm and good looks, Sandra Avila Beltran enthralled Mexico. Not as a beauty queen but as an alleged drug lord. The story of her arrest and possible extradition to the U.S. is being closely watched in Mexico.
Police say Avila Beltran spent more than a decade working her way to the top echelons of Mexico's male dominated drug trade, uniting Colombian and Mexican gangs and seducing several notorious kingpins. Dubbed the "Queen Of The Pacific," she even has her own song that pays homage to her as "a top lady who is a key part of the business."
Avila Beltran lived largely unnoticed in Guadalajara and Hermosillo until 2001. That's when police found more than 9 tons of cocaine on a ship to the Pacific port of Manzanillo and tracked the shipment to Avila Beltran and her lover, Juan Diego Espinoza Ramirez, also wanted by U.S. authorities.
Avila Beltran was arrested last year.
