Oz Bikini model clueless about Hells Angels cash

Lauren Bryant, 27, of the Gold Coast, a bikini model who dated a Hells Angels drug king-pin has told the Crime and Corruption Commission she doesn't know how $178,690 came to be in her bank account. She did admit that her former boyfriend Vadim Victor Volkov, 33 would give her 'inch-thick' bundles of cash to deposit in a series of bank accounts.

During Vadim Volkov's four-year relationship with the model more than $1M passed through her bank accounts.

When police raided Volkov's home in August 2015 they found $1m in cash and a variety of guns including two semi-automatic rifles.
Volkov has argued all his assets were legally acquired by gambling or inheritance. The state argues Volkov bought his properties with dirty money. Bryant claims she found out about her ex-boyfriend's connection with the Hells Angels only after their relationship ended. Bryant is now a 'life coach'.

Australia. A member of the Hells Angels has allegedly been found with close to $500,000 in cash, with anti-bikie police also seizing drugs, vehicles and weapons parts in an overnight raid. Investigators found $180,000 of cash before finding a further $300,000 in a Gold Coast safety deposit box, Detective Acting Superintendent Brendan Smith said.

On Wednesday afternoon, police announced they had found two automatic assault rifles and another $350,000 in cash in two more safety deposit boxes in Brisbane and Burleigh. The raids centred around the Hells Angels methamphetamines distribution network on the Gold Coast. The 33-year-old arrested man, Vadim Victor Volkov, is expected to make a bail application on Friday after briefly facing Southport Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
