Simone Farrow: Hollywood Model Who Became Head Of Global Drugs Ring Arrested !

A fugitive international swimsuit model accused of being the head of a global drugs ring has been arrested.

Ex men's magazine pin-up Simone Farrow was found hiding out in a cheap motel on Queensland’s Gold Coast. She is expected to appear in court this week after being extradited from to Sydney.

Farrow, 37, is accused of trafficking the drug meths in bags of bath salts from a posh apartment in Hollywood and police claim she has at least 19 aliases.

She has been on the run for a month, fleeing $160,000 bail, which she claims was because "someone was trying to murder me".

Court documents reveal an extraordinary alleged life of crime behind the glamour of the modelling world which had set up blonde Farrow, voted one of FHM magazine's "sexiest women in the world", for a jet-setting life of luxury.

But it will be claimed that as the years went by Farrow became involved in drugs, standover men and other criminal enterprises in the U.S. and Australia.

She worked her illicit operation from an apartment near Sunset Boulevard. It was there she was kept under watch by U.S. authorities.

Police claim Farrow organised for high-grade crystal methylamphetamine, which was often piled up on desks in the apartment, to be mailed to New South Wales and Victoria hidden in parcels containing "bath products", "pants" or "small fountain kits".

Buyers sent cash to Farrow through the post or made deposits at National Australia Bank branches into her bank account, the court heard.

After her arrest Farrow was bailed when a Moss Vale woman she met in jail put up $320,000 surety. That was dropped to $150,000, put up by barrister Anthony Renshaw and doctor Joseph Grech.

As a condition of her bail Farrow was to reside at Renshaw's Double Bay apartment before that was altered to allow her to live in Grech's Paddington property.

But that money was put at risk when Farrow failed to appear at two scheduled court appearances last month and went on the run.

One member of the drug syndicate, Sydney's Sunday Telegraph revealed today, committed suicide in a Hollywood motel the day after being contacted by investigators.
