Candidates in different beauty pageants are known to have a beauty, mind, and a body. The way they managed themselves on the stage is the reason why they are admired by many. But what if such a beautiful candidate would be arrested because of drugs? Some may be careful enough in taking care of their names, this story is somehow the other way around.
Just recently an ex-Binibining Pilipinas candidate was in news for being one of the suspects arrested by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency operatives in a drug raid at Bonifacio Global City (BGC) in Taguig City, on Friday night at past 9pm.

The suspects were identified as Joseph Bayquen Jr. and Maria Sofia Gloria Mustonen, a candidate of the Binibining Pilipinas 2013 pageant.
According to her profile listed by Rappler last 2013, Sofia took up Diplomatic and Consular Affairs at the De La Salle College of St. Benilde. She is an aspiring politician and an active in different charities and activities in Antique, her mother’s province.
Bayquen was allegedly selling drugs to call center agents. Mustonen, meanwhile, denied that she was peddling drugs.
Seized during the raid were more than 200 grams of shabu, cocaine, several ecstasy pills, drug paraphernalia and two firearms.
