A fugitive model who taunted police with holiday photos from Indonesia while fleeing Indonesia has been ordered to pay back £31,000.

Terrence Murrell, 34, fled the UK for the paradise island of Bali after being caught trafficking illegal steroids.

Instead of keeping a low profile, he taunted the police with pictures of his playboy lifestyle 6,000 miles away.

He constantly shared snaps on his Facebook and Instagram with grinning pictures in the sunshine.

He captioned a picture with friends: “The baddest men in Bali.”

He also posed for photos in an infinity pool and worked out at a gym.

Murrell was then pursued while fleeing Bali to Cambodia.

However, he was fidgety when British police were allowed to travel to Cambodia to bring him back to the UK to start his prison sentence last February.

Today, prosecutor Sarah Baddrawy told a crime proceeds hearing that Murrell had benefited £31,702.18 from his crimes – and North Wales Police already held those assets.

His Honor Timothy Petts ordered Murrell to repay the £31,702.18 within three months or face an additional 15 months in prison.

He said: “I am delighted that matters have been settled and I am issuing a recovery order on the proposed terms for the payment of £31,702.18.

“There follows, in the usual manner, a full investigation into what Mr. Murrell has obtained from his crimes and disposable assets.”

The judge added that police could come back to court to try to recover more money if they discover other assets in the future.

A court heard Murrell was a senior member of a £2million steroid gang that shipped drugs from China to Britain to sell.

Murrell, from Oxfordshire, told police he bought the drugs for himself because he “wanted to do his best as a male model”.

He later admitted to supplying Class C drugs in North Wales via websites but did not appear for a hearing on the verdict at Caernarfon Crown Court.

John Lyons, defending himself, said: “He has been evasive about his pleas for some time. He always wanted to admit the offenses but always put off the bad day.”

Judge Rees said Murrell was part of a “very extensive criminal operation” that imported the drugs from Hong Kong and China.

He added: “It is well known that anabolic steroids have been widely abused in sports, particularly where an increase in muscle mass is required.

“Steroid administration often leads to undesirable side effects, mood swings, overconfidence, aggression, loss of libido, and liver toxicity.”

After his arrest, a spokesman for North Wales Police said: “People believe they can escape justice by leaving the country, but Murrell’s arrest shows that we will pursue criminals and take the necessary steps to track them down .”
