Five people have been arrested in the 2011 kidnapping of the husband of Mexican pop icon and McAllen resident Gloria Trevi, according to Mexican newspaper El Norte.
The arrests came Monday in San Antonio, where authorities arrested Trevi’s godmother, Lucía Janeth Garza Sánchez, and her mother, Juanita Sánchez Quintanilla, along with three other people implicated in Armando Gomez’s kidnapping, the Monterrey-based newspaper reported.
U.S. authorities have not confirmed the arrests, but Univision reported that the detentions were performed by Interpol and the FBI.
Gomez had been kidnapped in October 2011 in Monterrey by a group of armed men. He was freed after four days.
Mexican officials told El Norte they had not received word from the U.S. that the arrests had been made.
Known as the “Supreme Diva of Mexican Pop,” Trevi has several No. 1 hits to her name since recording her first solo record in 1989. She last performed locally in February at State Farm Arena in Hidalgo.
