CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- A woman who was the December 2006 Playboy Playmate of the Month and a personal trainer have been charged with trafficking cocaine after police say maids discovered a kilo of the drug in their hotel room. Arrest warrants say that 24-year-old Kia Terrell Drayton and 33-year-old Otis Leon Story, both of Atlanta, were arrested as they left their room at the Residence Inn near North Charleston Coliseum in Charleston, South Carolina, on Wednesday morning. Both also are charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime. Their bail was set at $2.2 million dollars each and they remained in jail Thursday night. Drayton identified herself as a Playboy employee during her hearing. According to police reports, housekeeping staff started cleaning Drayton's room thinking she had checked out. They discovered a black gym bag left on top of a hotel safe and found a brick-shaped package wrapped in duct tape inside the safe. According to police reports, the staff called officers after unwrapping the package and finding a powdery white substance. Police watched the room and when Story left the room with a black bag, officers stopped him and found the brick that had been in the safe. Police say when they searched the gold Cadillac Escalade Drayton was driving, they found two handguns. Police say they seized more than 11-hundred grams of cocaine.
