Popular Instagram model and Fitness Influencer, Mary Molloy, and her ex-boyfriend, have been arrested for being part of a major drug trafficking ring in Australia.
Oh blimey! The 25-yr old, and her 32-yr old ex, Jason, were taken into custody on Tuesday. This arrest was part of an overnight raid the Australian police undertook in Newstead and Tenerife.
However, police caught the duo while they had stormed properties in Brisbane, a suburb of Newstead. Australian police are actively in a fight against drug related crimes and these arrests are just a part of it.
Mary and Jason are allegedly dealers in MDMA
Firstly, MDMA is an acronym for ‘3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine’. It is a synthetic drug that acts as a stimulant and hallucinogen. It produces an energizing effect, distortions in time and perception, and enhanced enjoyment from sensory experiences. MDMA is commonly known as Ecstasy or X, in its tablet form.
Now the couple, who split barely 3 weeks ago, are facing charges which include trafficking, supply and possession of MDMA, as well as possession of things used in the commission of a crime.
Mary Molloy is being charged, in addition, with trafficking cocaine. Yikes!
Furthermore, the police reports state that they seized over 24,000 ecstasy pills in the operation. These amount to $1 million in street value! A couple, Lucy Molloy and Russell Johnston, also got arrested for possessing just about the same amount of X pills, in November. Looks like this group was trying to move the same ‘seized’ drugs, alleges the police. “The movement was between Sydney and Queensland”, added the police.
Mary and Jason appeared in court and were granted bail. They return to court on 30th April.
Prior to this incident, Mary was an active model and fitness model with about 70K followers on Instagram. Moreover, she offers diet advice and is known for regularly posting her bikini bum. She was a recent finalist in the World Beauty Fashion and Fitness competition.
