A woman identified as Rachel Doran has been arrested by cops after she allegedly faked her groom’s stag do (bachelor’s party) and fled with the £13,000 kitty.
According toThe Sun UK,the 29-year-old was detained on suspicion of fraud after duping her groom-to-be and allegedly running off with the cash he and pals put towards his stag.
Confirming the arrest, Cumbria Police said:“We can confirm that a 29-year-oldwoman, from Cleator Moor, was arrested yesterday evening on suspicion of fraud by false representation.
“She has since been released under investigation while enquiries continue.”Chris Mahone was left high and dry at the airport when he and 29 pals turned up to fly to Ibiza but discovered they had been duped.
His wife-to-be Rachel had offered to arrange the flights and hotel for the huge four-day knees up on the party island.
But she is alleged to have pocketed thecash and run away from the couple’s home in Cumbria – as Chris and his mates were turned away after presenting fake boarding passes.
Some of his pals decided not to let it spoil a planned holiday and booked onto a flight to Magaluf as Chris decided to head home and drown his sorrows instead.But after a four-day bender in his hometown, he changed his Facebook profile picture to an image of him and three pals on a flight.
The 27-year-old posted the picture of him and mates holding wads of cash as one wore a bright pink stag do t-shirt.
It is not known if this was an old photo to replace the Facebook profile shot of Chris and Rachel, or a second go at a lads holiday after the first attempt to goaway failed miserably.
It came as Rachel headed for a caravanpark to ‘go into hiding’ as her embarrassed family disowned her.
Chris had earlier apologised to pals online and told them the £5,000 Christmas wedding for 100 guests has been cancelled.
One pal said:”Chris is in a bad way. He can’t believe what has happened and isstruggling to get his head round it.
“He was looking forward to his stag do in Ibiza with all his friends and was excited about getting married – but it’s all over.
“Chris doesn’t want anything to do with Rachel anymore.”He’s beside himself and in bits but he can’t see any way forward after what she’s done to him and the lads.”A relative, who did not want to be named, said:“We are all devastated.
Hethought she was the most amazing fiancée ever, for organising the stag and everything.”Sources claim Rachel was seeking revenge after mistakenly believing Chris had cheated on her.
Her brother Ryan fumed online:”Too good of a lad for a scumbag like that pal, she will get what’s coming to her!”
She’s got no f***er now! No morals whatsoever!!”
