Gorgeous Model Says She Was Framed After 35 Packets Of Cocaine Found Hidden Under Drivers Seat

Gorgeous Greek model Afroditi Barba claims that she has been framed after 35 packages of cocaine were found hidden under her car seat during a traffic stop.

Barba, 31, famous for her appearance on the second series of ‘Next Top Model Greece’, was stopped by the police in her black Range Rover in the suburb of Glyfada in the Greek capital Athens on the evening of 21st August.

The police said the model’s behaviour was suspicious and so they decided to thoroughly search her vehicle.

Officers reportedly found 35 packages of cocaine weighing a total of 33.1 grammes under the driver’s seat.

According to local media, Barba’s Range Rover was seized and she was detained at Glyfada Police Station for drug trafficking.

As the cocaine was reportedly split into 35 separate nylon packaging bags, the police believe they were intended for sale.

However, the model claimed that she did not know anything about the drugs, adding that she had been set up by ‘hostile parties’ to damage her career, according to her lawyer.

Meanwhile, the police said in a statement: “After signalling for the driver to stop, she seemed very anxious and panicked, and because her behaviour was judged, based on our experience, to be particularly suspicious, we decided to check the vehicle.

“During the check, the woman called an unknown person and seemed very worried and confused. When we asked her if she had anything illegal on her person or in the car, she answered in the negative.

“We then searched the vehicle and located a plastic bag containing 35 identical nylon packages with a total gross weight of 33.1 grammes, possibly cocaine, hidden under the driver’s seat.

“As soon as the driver realised we found the drugs, she lost her temper and said ‘what are these? Drugs? You put them on me’ and at the same time, while talking on the phone, she said to the unknown person ‘get a lawyer’.

“We directly asked her to hang up the phone and we brought her with us (to the station).

“When we asked her about her work, she replied that she works as a model, and she apologised to us for accusing us (of planting the drugs).”

The model’s mother, name not reported, told local media: “My daughter is innocent, she was set up. She has never even used it (cocaine). She is the mother of a small child and would not knowingly get involved in such a situation.”

Through her lawyer, Barba said that she had been receiving threats recently, adding: “This whole case has been fabricated by a hostile party. Several people wanted my client to have this accusation against her and as such, there have been warning messages against her for a month and a half that threatened to destroy her and her child’s lives.”

The investigation continues.
