Model from Vancouver jailed in California drug bust

Aspiring Vancouver model Krista Boseley wanted to make it big, even attending a Playboy magazine open call.

Now she’s in L.A. behind bars, after she and companion Gilles Lapointe were arrested in California on Oct. 9. Boseley, 30, and Lapointe, 61, are facing charges of conspiracy to distribute ecstasy after arriving at Orange County’s John Wayne Airport in possession of 40 kilograms of MDMA powder and 50,000 ecstasy pills worth over $ 2m according to U.S. court documents.
Both Boseley and Lapointe also carried large amounts of U.S. cash they claimed to have won gambling at the Bellagio in Las Vegas the night before.
“Boseley denied any knowledge of the carry-on luggage, the backpack or anything illegal,” the documents stated. “Boseley said she won $7,500 at the Bellagio casino in Las Vegas and Lapointe won close to $20,000.” A year earlier, on Sept. 16, 2013, Boseley had also been stopped by the Los Angeles Police Department while carrying $40,000 she claimed belonged to someone else.
