Insta-Famous Australian Bikini Model Raquel Petit Charged with Steroid Trafficking
October 10th, 2018



Raquel Petit, an Insta-famous Australian bikini model and the founder of the luxury Petitkini “micro-cut bikini” swimwear company, is scheduled to stand trial next week on 47 charges including importing and trafficking a commercial quantity of anabolic steroids. Petit has pleaded not guilty to all of the charges.

In addition to the glamorous and partying lifestyle she portrayed on social media, Petit apparently enjoyed flirting with the wrong side of the law. Prior to getting involved in the underground steroid trade, Petit dated Wade Yates-Taui when he was hiding out as a fugitive on murder charges.

Yates-Taui was a PUMMA lightweight mixed martial arts fighter and a patched member of the Mongols Motorcycle Club. Yates-Taui was charged with murder as a result of his involvement in the fatal stabbing of rival Bandidos MC member Max Waller in June 2013.

Petit joined Yates-Taui after he went on the lam in the United States. The couple lived a lavish lifestyle in California which was documented by Petit on her personal Facebook page. Yates-Taui was arrested by United States Marshals thanks to information concerning his whereabouts obtained from Petit’s Facebook page.

Yates-Taui was extradited back to Australia where he pleaded guilty to a downgraded charge of manslaughter. Petit publicly professed her undying love of Yates-Taui in court before he was sentenced to 7-1/2 years in prison.


By then, Petit was already deeply involved in a steroid trafficking ring involving two other individuals in Australia. Police alleged that Petit imported and trafficked anabolic steroids in around the Province of Victoria from July 2015 until November 2016. When Petit was arrested, police seized $46,920 that allegedly represented her share of the proceeds from the steroid trafficking.

Petit’s was primarily responsible for setting up multiple private mail boxes at post offices in nearby towns and cities. Petit produced an assortment of false identity documents which she used to open the post office boxes under fake names.

Petit’s steroid group would order steroids from the Ukraine and China and have the packages shipped to the various post office boxes. Petit faces 42 criminal charges specifically related to making, using and producing false documents.

Petit was in the news again in April 2018 after paparazzi photographed her allegedly partying with Olympic champion and 100-meter world record holder Usain Bolt at an exclusive Gold Coast nightclub. Bolt’s association was an accused steroid trafficker would have been terrible publicity for the outspoken anti-steroid Bolt. It turned out that Bolt did nothing more than agree to take pictures with Petit along with models Liza Connolly and Chloe Hurrel

Petit’s trial begins on October 8, 2018.

People can’t help themselves with this nonsense. Steroid trafficking is no joke in Australia. She’ll give info though and get reduced. A chick like that will do ANYTHING not to go to prison. Everything will be on the table no doubt.

Bikini Model Raquel Petit Snitches on Steroid Trafficking Partners to Avoid Prison
December 1st, 2018




Raqel Petit becomes a police informant in order to avoid an 18-month prison sentence.


Australian bikini model Raquel Petit put on her best pouty face and batted her eyes a few times and just like that she got prosecutors to drop 45 charges arising from her involvement in a steroid importation and trafficking syndicate. Well, maybe that and the fact that she snitched on her two business partners.

The 25-year old Petit agreed to become a police informant and help prosecutors put her two co-conspirators in jail. Eden Turkovic and Paul Millan were allegedly in charge of the steroid trafficking organization that operated from July 2015 until November 2016.

Judge Gavan Meredith agreed that Petit’s testimony against Turkvic and Millan was of “substantial value”. Judge Meredith told Petit that he would have sentenced her to 18-months in prison if she had not agreed to testify against her co-conspirators.

Petit’s attorney claimed she was a young and naive woman who made a mistake.

Amie Hancock, the defense attorney who represented Petit, told the judge that her client was a “young, naive women” who apparently fell in with the wrong crowd. Hancock further asserted that Petit received no financial gain from her involvement.

Petit may have been romantically involved with one of her co-conspirators. She reportedly left him and moved to another city approximately 18 months before she was charged with any crimes.

Of course, the “young and naive” Petit has a history of making poor choices with men. Her last boyfriend (Wade Yates-Taui) was a motorcycle gang member involved in a brutal stabbing death.

Petit joined him as he fled prosecution and lived the high life in the southern California. She documented their time on the lam via social media. Petit’s social media postings allowed U.S. Marshal track him down and extradite him to Australia.

When Petit returned to Australia, she found herself drawn to the criminal element once again. This time it was steroid trafficking.

Petit was not directly involved in any aspect of the drug trade. She set up multiple private mail boxes and initiated numerous international MoneyGram and Western Union money transfers at the direction of her co-conspirators.

Petit pleaded guilty to five misdemeanor charges related to the production of an assortment of false identity documents which she used to open the post office boxes under a false name. Petit used her picture along with the name of a former school classmate.

Petit will not be required to spend any time in jail. Judge Meredith sentenced Petit to a 5-year good behavior bond. The terms of her cooperation agreement with prosecutors require that Petit provide ongoing and continuous assistance in its cases against Turkovic and Millan.

Turkovic and Millan are scheduled to stand trial in February 2019.
