Mary Molloy, an Instagram model who has a huge amount of social media followers, has gotten in trouble with the law due to an alleged relationship with a possible drug trafficking group.
On Tuesday night the model was arrested after a couple of properties in Brisbane were searched by law enforcement.
According to reports, the fitness model was arrested with her ex-boyfriend. Mary is known for having dozens of pictures of herself posing in gym tops and bikinis. In those pictures, she shows off her figure and her abs.
The name of her former partner is Jason Atkins, and he is 32 years old. The arrests and the raids were part an investigation. Law enforcement believed there was a drug ring operating in the Queensland area.
The properties raided were in Teneriffe and Newstead, located in central Brisbane.
Mary, who is 25-years-old, has almost 70,000 followers on the social media platform Instagram. She is a WBFF Fitness pro.
Mary and Jason appeared in court on Wednesday. They were granted bail at the Magistrates Court.
Law enforcement has alleged that both Mary and Jason were involved in several drug-related offenses. Those offenses include the possession of MDMA—as well as trafficking and supply of the substance.
Their arrests are allegedly linked to arrests made back in November of last year. Drugs were seized, and a group was apparently trying to move them.
Law enforcement will likely claim that 24,000 MDMA pills were discovered; those pills have a street value of about one million dollars.
Lucy Molloy and Russel Johnston, the two arrested last year, have been accused of being part of a syndicate. Those arrests came about as a result of law enforcement discovering pills at a house in Albion.
According to what the court was told, Mary and Jason had been in a relationship until they split up three weeks ago.
They are set to appear in court again on the 30th of April.
According to police, there was a network working to move illegal substances between Sydney and the state of Queensland.
Jason Atkins has allegedly been associated with a location where MDMA was found.
Time will tell us if the model and her former partner were involved in trafficking drugs; however, it should be noted that the use of MDMA is no laughing matter.
MDMA, which is commonly referred to as ecstasy, is a popular psychoactive and recreational drug. It was first made in 1912. Recreational use really started to begin in the 1970’s and 1980’s.
At this time, the drug is not believed to have any medicinal uses.
The drug, which is illegal in most countries, is taken because it tends to create euphoria and heightened sensations. It is associated with “rave culture” and is also popular in clubs and at festivals.
While euphoria sounds fantastic, there are adverse physical effects when it comes to MDMA. Dehydration and hyperthermia are common health risks. Insomnia, increased blood pressure and heart rate, nausea, vomiting, and erectile dysfunction are other physical side effects of taking the drug. It is also toxic to a fetus when consumed by a pregnant woman.
Increased body temperature and dehydration have led to deaths. The drug is often taken with other drugs, such as ketamine, marijuana, cocaine, and meth.
Unfortunately, ecstasy is often not pure—there are frequently dangerous additive chemicals.
Deaths may also occur due to drug interactions—consuming it with another serotonergic drug can lead to a dangerous condition called serotonin syndrome.
There are psychological side effects as well, including anxiety, paranoia, irritability, depression, restlessness, memory impairment, and impulsiveness. Addiction is also a problem.
It has been estimated that roughly 3.5 percent of people between 18 and 25 in the United States have used MDMA. About 900,000 people in the United States used it in 2010. In Europe, roughly 37 percent of those who regularly go to clubs have used MDMA.
It is worth pointing out that MDMA is not necessarily a cheap drug. In the United States, it can cost as low as one dollar a pill, but it can also cost as much 70 dollars.
