Cops say this stunning young influencer dubbed the ‘Kitty of Crackland’ after she was caught with crack cocaine in her knickers and cannabis in her bra is a major drug dealer who is now removed from the streets.
Pretty Lorraine Cutier Bauer Romeiro, 19, was freed on bail when she was caught with the drugs in her underwear in June, as she had only recently had a baby daughter she needed to look after.
Because she was arrested in a central area of the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo dubbed ‘Cracolandia’ (‘Crackland’) and because of her stunning looks, she was dubbed the ‘Kitty of Crackland’ in the story that was published around the world.
Her arrest took place during a routine police patrol of Cracolandia – so-called because of its high incidence of drug dealing and public drug use – and the young woman’s nervousness caught their attention.
The cops took her to a police checkpoint, where they strip-searched her and found she was carrying cannabis in her bra and cocaine and crack in her knickers.
However, because she had a child under the age of one, she was freed on bail.
However, after her release, she changed address without telling the police, and she was then arrested a second time, this time in her boyfriend’s house in the city of Barueri in the Greater Sao Paulo region on Thursday, 22nd July.
With the influencer – who boasts 57,600 followers on Instagram – the cops found a rucksack containing 85 portions of cannabis, 295 sachets of cocaine, another eight of crack, 97 bottles of chloroethane and 16 ecstasy pills valued at BRL 8,500 (GBP 1,168).
The teen admitted to the police to possessing the drugs with intent to supply, and the police now say they believe she is a well-known figure in the Sao Paulo criminal underworld and that she made her money as a drug lord.
Police chief Roberto Monteiro told news site G1: “She acted as a drug lord. There are an average of 10 tables in each tent (in Cracolandia), which are rented from other drug dealers. And she was the leader of one of these booths, replacing her partner, who is also imprisoned for drug trafficking. She flaunts a high standard of living, and all that comes from drug trafficking.”
News site R7 reports that she and her boyfriend, Andre ‘Japones’ (‘Japanese’), earned over BRL 6,000 (GBP 824) a day from trafficking drugs in Cracolandia.
The investigation is ongoing and she will answer to charges of drug trafficking.
