Ex-Bachelors cast member arrested in organised crime raid

A former Bachelors cast member has been charged with high-end drug supply and money laundering offences.

The Daily Telegraph reports Marjorie Griffiths, 27, who featured in The Bachelors earlier this year, was charged by organised Crime Squad detectives when they allegedly uncovered a large-scale drug operation being run on the Central Coast, due to drug money allegedly being laundered through a Vietnamese syndicate.

A 37-year-old man in Vietnam was identified as allegedly running a money laundering syndicate in NSW, which converted large amounts of cash to cryptocurrency for crime groups involved in drug supply. To date, detectives have charged 12 people — one with money laundering offences to the value of $6.8m — and seized about 300kg of prohibited drugs, $2.8m in cash and 15 firearms.

On 10 series The Bachelors Grifffiths was the 4th single lady to be sent home by Bachelor Thomas, who ultimately paired with winner Leah.
