He regularly posted pictures on Facebook and Instagram pages with smirking shots in the sunshine.
He also posed for pictures in an infinity pool, regular body shots of himself working out in a gym and using his laptop in a four-poster bed.
Many of the snaps were captioned: ‘Boss life.’
But Murrell was finally traced after he fled from Bali to Cambodia.
He is now being held in custody and will be transported back to face justice as soon as the coronavirus pandemic is over.
A court heard Murrell was a leading member of a £2million steroid gang who shipped drugs from China to sell in the UK.
He told police he bought the drugs for himself as he ‘wanted to look his best as a male model’.
Prosecutor Sarah Badrawy said bank accounts showed Murrell had pocketed more than £220,000.
Drugs worth almost £2m had been seized and the gang were thought to have made £1.2m profit in two years.
Murrell later admitted supplying class C drugs in North Wales via websites but he failed to turn up for a sentencing hearing at Caernarfon Crown Court.
John Lyons, defending, said: ‘He has been prevaricating about his pleas for some time. He was always going to admit the offences but kept putting off the evil day.’
Murrell, from London, was jailed for 37 months in his absence and the court heard he was on the run in Indonesia.
Judge Huw Rees said: ‘He is living in the lap of luxury.’
He said that Murrell was part of ‘a very extensive criminal operation’ which imported the drugs from Hong Kong and China.
He added: ‘It is well known that anabolic steroids have been widely abused in sport, especially where an increase in muscle mass is required.
‘The administration of steroids often produces unwanted side effects, mood swings, overconfidence, aggression, loss of libido and liver toxicity.’
A North Wales Police spokesman said officers know that Terence Murrell has been arrested in Cambodia. He said: ‘We are currently working with colleagues from the National Crime Agency and the Crown Prosecution Service to bring him back to the UK to serve his sentence. “Due to the current situation with the coronavirus pandemic, this will happen as soon as it is safe to do so.”
