In Bad Boys For Life (2020), Marcus notices that Rita and her team has a suitcase full of weapons:

Marcus: Whoa, where'd you get all the toys?

Rita: DEA station in Cuernavaca. We capture her, they take the credit. Get ourselves killed, they've got nothing to do with it.

Who is "her" in "capture her" refer to?

    Who do you think it might refer to? – F1Krazy Jul 12 at 10:22

They want to capture Isabel Aretas, a Mexican crime lord.

I haven't seen the movie but the plot description on Wikipedia is pretty detailed:

The main antagonist is

Isabel Aretas, widow of cartel kingpin Benito,

that enacts her revenge on the police officers responsible of her husband's death. Among them is Mike Lowry (Will Smith's character) and Captain Howard. This leads Mike, his partner Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence), and their teammates to go to Mexico:

Mike ultimately remained loyal to the police, realizing how dangerous Isabel had become. Despite Mike's opposition, Marcus and AMMO join him in Mexico City to confront her.

"her" in the sentence clearly refer to Isabel. This is very likely to be the same in the scene in the OP.

Also, there seem to be only two main female characters in the movie: the antagonist Isabel and Mike and Marcus' new teammate Rita. Since Rita is speaking in that scene, the only remaining possibility is Isabel.

    This is why I asked OP who he thought it referred to: it seems so obvious to me, even without having watched the film, that I'm sure he'd have realised it if he just sat down and thought about it for five seconds. – F1Krazy Jul 12 at 10:30
