Ed Hardy bikini model Simone Farrow was reportedly arrested in Eastern Australia and extradited back to Sydney to face charges due to allegations that she runs a drug ring and for fleeing $150,000 bail.
The former Penthouse Pet Simone Farrow was arrested Wednesday night at a motel in Australia. According to reports, Farrow stands accused of trafficking “Ice” – a form of Crystal Methamphetamine which is smoked like Crack Cocaine. Apparently, Simone Farrow had figured out a way to package the crystal meth in cartons of bath salts for shipping.
Court documents indicate that the Ed Hardy model had legally changed her name to Lawson after posting bail. The government believes that she was changing her name to prepare to flee the country.
The authorities are alleging that Simone Farrow was the one behind a massive criminal conspiracy to import the crystal meth drug into the country and sell it on the streets of Australia.
One member of the alleged syndicate committed suicide in a Hollywood motel the day after being contacted by US authorities.
The court documents presented during Simone Farrow’s bail hearing said that she had devised the system of hiding the “ice” or crystal meth in bath salts for import and ran the drug ring out of her Sunset Boulevard apartment in Los Angeles.
The Australian Federal Police worked with officers from the US Drug Enforcement Administration to investigate Simone Farrow and her company GlobalStarr.
