(Newser) – Colombia's one-time Coffee Queen became queen bee of a gang that recruited models to smuggle cocaine from South America to Europe, police say. Angie Sanclemente Valencia was busted in Argentina yesterday after being on the run for 5 months, the BBC reports. Valencia, 30, was stripped of her title in 2000 after authorities discovered that she was married.
