This stunning Instagram model and her husband have been arrested as part of a mega-raid against suspected drug dealers and gang members in which 15 people were apprehended.
Slovak stunner Zuzana Plackova, 30, was arrested in her apartment in the Slovak capital, Bratislava, on the morning of Monday, 27th September.
Her husband, Rene Strausz, was arrested alongside the influencer, who goes by the moniker Queen Plackova on Instagram where she boasts 787,000 followers.
Plackova uses her Instagram page to flaunt her apparent wealth by posting photos of herself on luxury holidays and private jets and dressed in expensive clothing with designer handbags.
The police revealed they seized over nine kilogrammes (20 lbs) of methamphetamine – totalling at least 90,000 single doses – in addition to weapons, ammunition, cigarettes and over EUR 70,000 (GBP 60,278) in cash during the raid.
Plackova and her husband have since denied consuming or selling drugs. However, the police have named the couple as part of a criminal group they believe was involved in importing and distributing cocaine and meth.
They named the others in the alleged group as Tibor Guban, Peter Soka, Miroslav Farkas and David Lukac, and said that all suspects had been earning money from the group’s illegal activities in the Trnava, Bratislava and Trencin regions since 2012.
According to the police, Guban was in charge of importing the drugs and the remaining members of the group were dealers, who sold the illicit substances to consumers and other dealers.
The suspects’ arrests were the culmination of a long investigation in which they allegedly incriminated themselves during phone calls that the police had tapped.
Decisions on nine of the suspects’ preventive custody including Plackova’s are due to be reported today (Thursday, 30th September).
Plackova has been a celebrity in her native Slovakia ever since her appearance in the Slovak reality TV show ‘Hotel Paradise’ in 2012.
When quizzed on her finances in her last interview prior to her arrest, she replied: “The truth is that I save a lot.” She also claimed that her wealth came from her company of beauty products named ‘Queen Collagen’.
Plackova and her husband face drug-related, gang-related and other charges.
