Former Playboy playmate extradited to face cocaine charges

A former Playboy model has been extradited from the US to Australia to face cocaine conspiracy charges.

Brandi Brandt, a 45-year-old actress and Playmate of the Month for October 1987, appeared in a Sydney court after her arrival on a flight from Los Angeles.

The former wife of Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx did not apply for bail or enter pleas. She was remanded in custody to appear in court in December.

She is accused of being involved with a cocaine importation syndicate that hid packages of the drug on Qantas and United Airlines passenger planes that flew from California to Sydney.

Court documents filed in Australia allege that Brandt conspired with others to import a commercial quantity of cocaine between July and December 2007 at Sydney Airport.

It is also alleged that California-born Brandt dealt with more than AUD $130,000 (€90,000) in proceeds from criminal activity between July and November the same year.

It is not clear what prison sentence she could face if convicted.

Her former boyfriend, motorcycle stuntman Rusty Setser, was also extradited to Sydney from Los Angeles last month to face charges over the alleged drug importation.
