Police allege the dating show contestant, who is known for flaunting her bikini body on Instagram, is a major player in an international drug syndicate and was personally involved in dealing with $814,870 from the proceeds of crime. Court papers seen by Daily Mail Australia allege the 26-year-old supplied 1kg of cocaine on March 7 and 1kg of ice exactly three months later, on June 7, both at Hornsby in Sydney’s northern suburbs. The controversial ‘blonde beauty’ contestant who became embroiled in spats with other contestants on the Channel 10 program earlier this year, will also be accused of allegedly laundering money.

In a dramatic arrest, members of the NSW Raptor Squad marched down the quiet cul-de-sac where Ms Griffiths lives just before 7am on Friday and emerged with her in handcuffs. According to court documents, she allegedly failed to comply with a ‘digital evidence access order direction’ and was placed in the back of a waiting police van. Ms Griffiths, who describes herself as an actor and model on her professional profiles, was taken to Gosford Police Station and charged with seven offences. She didn’t apply for bail. She is one of seven people charged in an alleged syndicate investigated by NSW Police Operation Phobetor-Enyo, jointly with Australian Federal Police, the NSW Crime Commission and the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission.
