Federal authorities executed a major drug bust at a Southern California airport last week that netted thousands of ecstasy pills, according to an Associated Press report.

On Oct 9, Krista Marieann Boseley, 30, and Gilles Lapointe, 61, were arrested upon landing at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California.

A consensual search of their aircraft led to drug dogs discovering 50,000 ecstasy pills and 90 pounds of raw MDMA, also known as “molly.”

Boseley and Lapointe also had $20,000 in cash, which they claim had been won from a Las Vegas casino.

According to Orange County officials, the private plane transporting Boseley and Lapointe had previously been linked to drug trafficking allegations, and authorities had automatically marked it for search upon entering U.S. airspace from Canada.

Boseley, an aspiring model, previously worked as a real estate agent.However, her model listing was taken down earlier this week, according to the Vancouver Sun.

Attorneys representing the pair declined to comment on the arrest, and they are being held until an Oct. 27 court date.
