According to Prensa Libre, Dolores once unexpectedly found a late-model vehicle at her house. It was a gift from Armando Olivares Cervantes, a Federal Police commander who was part of the Juarez Cartel along with Jesús “Don Chuy” Meléndez and Gilberto “El Greñas” Ontiveros.

These three individuals were known in Mexico as «The Kings of Cocaine» and operated within a company created by Giuseppe Catania Ponsiglione, a renowned Italian capo. In the early 1980s, Olivares was one of the most powerful figures in Mexican drug trafficking and he won the heart of the young beauty queen by showering her with lavish gifts.

Lolita was unaware of the true origin of Olivares’s wealth. However, after marrying the drug trafficking capo, she understood her husband’s real work. After marrying the drug trafficker belonging to the Juárez Cartel, the former beauty queen began to get involved in her husband’s criminal business and ventured into the world of drug trafficking by agreeing to work for the criminal organization led by The Lord of the Skies, according to Prensa Libre.

Surprisingly, Dolores Camarena González was arrested in the United States in May 1986. She was accused of laundering money for the drug traffickers of the Juárez Cartel. After her arrest, an El Paso court in Texas sentenced the former beauty queen to 200 years in prison after presenting evidence linking her to the Juárez Cartel.

The US authorities presented records of 58 deposits made by Dolores Camarena in Texas banks, according to Union Jalisco, which served as evidence to imprison her. Despite her initial sentence, Lolita was released after five years in a US prison and disappeared from the public eye forever.

The end of Olivares Cervantes was unknown, however rumors suggest that after his wife, Lolita, was released they continued their married life away from the world of drug trafficking and the Juárez Cartel in particular.
