Penthouse Pet Simone Farrow apprehended after fleeing 150k-dollar bail

Melbourne -  Penthouse Pet Simone Farrow, who is alleged to be the boss of a global drugs ring, was nabbed by police after a dramatic raid on the Gold Coast.

She is wanted for fleeing a 150,000-dollar bail.

The blonde swimsuit model, who was on the run for almost a month, was extradited to Sydney on Wednesday night after her arrest at a cheap hotel on the Gold Coast Highway, the Daily Telegraph reported.

Accused of trafficking “ice” in bags of bath salts from a plush Hollywood high-rise, an emotional Farrow broke down and pleaded her innocence on arrival at Sydney airport.

Flanked by two federal police officers, Farrow, 37, claimed that she only fled interstate because “someone was trying to murder me.”

She has now been remanded in custody on charges which include the alleged 2009 drug operation. By skipping bail, the model put at risk 150,000-dollar surety put up by a Sydney barrister and a flamboyant doctor.

Police allege that she was the brains behind an “ongoing criminal enterprise” that involved at least seven people.

The alleged enterprise was said to be run from Farrow’s apartment, located off Sunset Boulevard.

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

Farrow allegedly developed a method of hiding the drugs inside the bath products, court documents said.

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

According to court documents, more than 580,000 dollars was put into her account between February 2009 and October 2010.
