She's accused of swindling thousands of dollars from her clients and now she's behind bars in Idaho where she's facing extradition back to the Rio Grande Valley.
Authorities confirm that 'The Park Girl' mobile home dealership owner Jo Leigh Ares is behind bars in Boise, Idaho.
The Cameron County Pct. 7 Constable's office confirm that Ares has been arrested on five warrants around 7:20 p.m. Wednesday.
The five felony theft warrants were issued by Cameron County Pct. 7-1 Justice of the Peace Adam Gonzales out of La Feria.
Deputy constables received a tip that Ares would be aboard a flight from Sacramento, California to Boise, Idaho.
Investigators said a U.S. Air Marshall was aboard the flight and police were waiting for Ares at the Boise Airport.
Ares is accused of taking tens of thousands of dollars from people interested in buying a mobile and then not delivering.
Many disgruntled clients turned to Action 4 News, local law enforcement officials and the Texas Attorney General's Office for help.
Ares remains in custody in the Ada County Jail in Boise, Idaho.
Deputy constables are expected to travel to Idaho and bring Ares back to Texas.
