A New York policewoman leads a double life, working as a lingerie model by night.
Samantha Sepulveda has shot to fame after racking up over 418k followers on her Instagram which is filled with selfies and shoots of her posing in minimalist swimwear and lingerie.
Despite her glamorous side job, the 32-year-old takes her senior officer position in Freeport, Long Island very seriously.
The model claims her attractiveness actually helps when she is arresting people because suspects often come willingly.
Speaking to the New York Post, Sepulveda said:
I talk men into handcuffs all the time because they don’t want to fight me.
With a female officer, their guard is lowered. There’s less aggression and the situation is defused
She often hears suspects say ‘you can arrest me any time!’… pretty useful as a cop.
Samantha recounted a time when a man who threatened to kill some police officers was so overwhelmed by her beauty that he froze, the Daily Mail reports.
The cop-turned-lingerie model has travelled to the UK, Spain, Nicaragua, and Australia for her modelling career.
I’ve had exes who asked me why I need to show my boobs all the time.
But I’m not stupid. If people want to look at my boobs that’s fine – but my Instagram has also given me a great platform to help people.
She is under no illusion as to what has brought her the new-found fame.
