An Insta-famous fitness model with 70,000 followers has been arrested and charged in a dramatic overnight raid in Brisbane.

Police allege that Mary Molloy, 25, and her former partner Jason Atkins, 32, were part of a massive MDMA trafficking syndicate in Queensland.

The pair were taken into custody after an overnight raid at properties in Newstead and Teneriffe. Both were charged with a string of offences including trafficking, supply and possession of MDMA as well as possession of things used in the commission of a crime.

Molloy, who posted dozens of bikini-clad photos on her Instagram account and describes herself online as a WBFF Fitness Pro, was also charged with trafficking cocaine.

Their arrests are believed to be linked to two other arrests made in November after drugs were allegedly seized, which a group was said to be trying to move.

Detectives will claim 24,000 MDMA pills allegedly discovered at a property in Albion had a street value of more than $1 million.

Two people arrested at the time, Lucy Molloy and Russell Johnston, are also accused of being involved in a syndicate.

Police allege the syndicate was moving drugs from Sydney to Queensland and that Atkins is linked to a property were MDMA was seized.

The Courier-Mail reports that Atkins and Molloy were in a relationship but split up three weeks ago.

Molloy posted pictures of herself and Atkins together on her Instagram account.

“I love my human,” she wrote in one post. “I’m so lucky.”

The pair are due to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court today.
