A bride-to-be who allegedly ran off with £13,000 of her fiancé’s stag do funds has been arrested.

Rachel Doran, from Cleator Moir, Cumbria, had not been seen since the incident regarding the missing cash broke last week.

Confirming the arrest, a Cumbria Constabulary spokesperson told the Daily Mail, "Cumbria Constabulary can confirm that a 29-year-old woman, from Cleator Moor, was arrested yesterday evening on suspicion of fraud by false representation.

"She has since been released under investigation while enquiries continue."

The arrest comes after Chris Mahone, 27, let his fiancée, Doran, take charge of his stag trip but when the excited group of friends arrived at the airport, they discovered they had been conned.

Pretending to book a four-day knees-up, Doran allegedly took £440 from each of Mahone’s 29 pals but instead of actually organising the trip, it is claimed she forged boarding passes and faked a hotel reservation.

Taking to Facebook, Mahone wrote, "I can’t apologise enough. I’m sorry boys, I really am."

Sources say that the scorned fiancée was seeking revenge after believing that Mahone had cheated on her, but that she was mistaken.

It has also since been revealed that 29-year-old Doran was already on bail for credit card fraud.

She was arrested last month over claims that she had copied a hotel guest’s credit card before going on a spending spree.

"Rachel Doran was arrested last month in relation to the cloning of a tourist's credit card. She was questioned by officers and arrested on police bail," a source said.

Since fleeing, Doran’s friends have also allegedly spoken out over concerns that she may have fled with the hen party money too, while reports suggest that her own family have turned against her.

"Her parents are just devastated, embarrassed and disgusted — they won’t even come out the house," Monica McKee, Doran’s grandmother said.

"The lad she was going with, he was a lovely lad. I wouldn’t have her back in my door, I wouldn’t have her back down my garden path."
