In a surprising turn of events, Amairany Shezit, a young influencer and entrepreneur known for her association with “Dolls Drinks” in the Tepito neighborhood, was released by a judge in Mexico City. Shezit, who rose to fame as the face of one of Tepito’s most famous businesses and later became the owner, was initially detained on November 6.
During a hearing at the Reclusorio Norte of Mexico City, the judge ruled the influencer’s arrest, along with her companions, as illegal. This decision came despite their capture by the Secretariat of Citizen Security of CDMX, where they were found with a gun and a magazine.
Background of the Arrest
The arrest occurred under dramatic circumstances. On November 6, Mexico City’s Secretariat of Citizen Security (SSC) reported the detention of four men and three women following a brawl in the Gustavo A. Madero streets. Police intervention followed a report of gunshots in the Emiliano Zapata neighborhood.
Upon locating the suspects in a gray pickup truck and a black scooter, officers found a handgun and a magazine with cartridges, leading to the group’s detention. Among those released alongside Shezit were individuals with criminal records, including 27-year-old Gerardo Jair and 19-year-old Dayron Jacob.
The Legacy of Dolls Drinks
Amairany Shezit’s prominence is rooted in her role at Dolls Drinks, a business founded during the COVID-19 pandemic by Odely Rodriguez and her husband, Adrian Mendoza. Tragically, Rodriguez and Mendoza were murdered last May, leading Shezit, also known as Tepito’s Barbie, to take the helm of the business.
Shezit, who also experienced personal loss with the killing of her uncles last May, continues to be a significant figure in the Tepito neighborhood’s entrepreneurial landscape.
