(Newser) – Police worldwide are on the lookout for Angie Sanselmente Valencia, a former lingerie model who authorities believe runs a global drug trafficking ring. Valencia is said to use other models as "mules" because beautiful women can make it through airport security more effectively. Her group was exposed when a 21-year-old in her employ was arrested at a Buenos Aires airport with 121 pounds of cocaine.

Valencia's group allegedly paid runners $2,000 to transport drugs from Colombia to Mexico. The drugs would then be transported to Britain and continental Europe. Valencia is said to have learned her trade from a Mexican drug lord known as "The Monster" before going solo last year. She is thought to be on the run in either Argentina or Mexico, the Telegraph reports.
