Martinez, who held the trans title in 2019, was detained on Sunday in Rio de Janeiro’s Ipanema Beach.
Former Miss Brazil transgender Mikaelly Martinez is charged with drugging men she met online and robbing them of their goods.
Martinez, who held the trans crown in 2019, was arrested Sunday on Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janeiro, Newsflash reported.
“She used to drug men after attracting them to a sexual event or sometimes under the impression it was a sexual encounter,” Police Chief Leandro Gontijo said.
“When she arrived at the hotel, another trans suspect appeared who promised to take part in a threesome,” he added. “The man was offered a drink and a drug was put in the glass. He then had his belongings stolen.”
Police also are investigating Martinez in connection with similar crimes in Sao Paulo, Florianopolis and Balneario Camboriu, according to the outlet.
“It is important to emphasize that, if there are other victims, because they exist but people are too ashamed to register a complaint, that they can contact us at the 16th Precinct,” the chief said.
The beauty queen also was arrested in 2015 in connection with a homicide, the Brazilian news outlet G1 reported without providing details.
