Former model arrested at Suvarnabhumi with cocaine

Thai former model Alissa "Yuyee" Intusmith was arrested at Suvarnabhumi Airport today with a bag of cocaine in her possession.

Yuyee was reportedly acting suspiciously so customs officer searched her and found five miligrams of cocaine along with “medication pills,” the Bangkok Post reported. The former model said she had used the drug while she was in Vietnam and that it was for personal use only – not distribution.

She was charged with drug possession and held until her ex-husband Francisco Xavier Cuesta-Ramos, a Spaniard, posted her THB10,000 bail.

This isn't Yuyee's first brush with the law recently. In July, police raided her home in Bangkok's Saphan Sung district after people reported that she was keeping protected wildlife and found dozens of forest animals and birds, some of them protected.

For her part, Yuyee said she was only taking care of the animals before releasing them back into the wild.
