Cocaine Cassie has found love in prison

Australian drug smuggler Cassie Sainsbury has revealed she’s found love behind bars.

The 23-year-old spilled the news whilst speaking to New Idea from the Colombian women’s prison where she is serving a six-year sentence.

“It’s something that’s just starting,” she told the publication when asked about the romance.


It comes after the former personal trainer broke up with her fiancé Scott Broadbridge at the beginning of the year.

“I broke up with Scott because I thought it was the best thing for me, and the best thing for his future as well,” she told the Kyle and Jackie O Show at the time.

Sainsbury was arrested at El Dorado International Airport on April 12 2017, after a search of her luggage uncovered 5.8kg of cocaine hidden inside 18 headphone cases.

She was on her way back to Australia via London.
