John Ibrahim’s rumoured love interest model Sarah Budge ‘caught with Glock pistol’

A rumoured love interest of Kings Cross kingpin John Ibrahim has been caught up in today’s international crackdown on organised crime, with police alleging she was found with a loaded pistol.

Model Sarah Budge, who owns Crane Bar in Potts Point, was arrested in Double Bay on Tuesday.

Budge just days ago posted a glamorous photo from a modelling shoot on Instagram. Police tonight allege she was found in possession of a Glock 26 loaded handgun.

The pistol is commonly dubbed the “Baby Glock”.

She was caught in the major police sting after officers executed 30 search warrants across Sydney during which they seized five firearms, small quantities of prohibited drugs and hundreds of thousands in cash.

She is not expected to face further charges.

Social media shows Budge and Ibrahim rang in the new year together at Icebergs bar in Sydney.

Budge, a well-known identity on the Sydney night scene, was first spotted with Ibrahim in 2015 when they partied in Ibiza with Kyle Sandilands.

In the photographs Budge appeared unsteady on her feet with Ibrahim keeping a tight grip on her.

At the time sources said they couple had been together for about a year.

Police charged the 27-year-old with one count of possess firearm not authorised to do so by licence or permit contrary to section 7A (1) of the Firearms Act 1996 (NSW).

The maximum penalty for this offence is five years imprisonment.
