An Afro-Colombian social media influencer was arrested last week, alongside her family, for alleged money-laundering.

According to the New York Post, Jenny Ambuila, 26, is currently under house arrest in her native Colombia after she was busted while on vacation there.

Colombian investigators say the Miami resident, who was known for her lavish lifestyle filled with designer bags and expensive cars, was swept up in a corruption scheme at the Colombian port of Buenaventura, where her father was employed as a customs officer.

WCAU-TV reports that her father, Omar Ambuila, collected over $1 million in bribes to allow untaxed goods into the country.

Ambuila has since deleted photos and made her Instagram profile private—as well as deleted her lifestyle website—after investigators say that their investigation led them to her social media profiles.
