Big steroid and HGH bust
12th Feb 2016 5:11 PM
Police have busted a steroid and HGH gang in Australia. Steroids and HGH are usually trafficked by motorcycle gangs and this appears to have been the case here. A clandestine underground laboratory (UGL) was discovered in Jindalee and was identified as the centre of operations for a network of individuals involved in the importation, manufacturing and trafficking of UGL steroids and HGH throughout the area.
The criminal activities of the gang was brought to the attention of authorities after a quantity of steroid powders was intercepted at Australian customs. The raw steroid powders are usual imported from China or India then converted to liquid injectable steroids or pills at an underground laboratory.
Police seized drugs, computers, tablets, steroids in various forms and drug equipment.
Nineteen people have been charged including:
- A 28-year-old man from Jindalee charged with six counts of possessing restricted drugs and three counts of possessing dangerous drugs,
- A 26-year-old Chermside man charged with one count of possessing dangerous drugs and possessing a controlled substance,
- A 24-year-old Chermside West man charged with possess dangerous drug and possess restricted drug and
- A 28-year-old Mt Gravatt man charged with two counts of possess dangerous drug and one count each of possess restricted substance and possess category R weapon,
- A 26-year-old Kirra man charged with two counts of possess dangerous drug,
- A 32-year-old West End man charged with four counts of possess dangerous drug.
Detective Inspector Phil Stevens from Taskforce Maxima said we have removed dangerous drugs from our streets. The importation and distribution of performance enhancing drugs by motorcycle gangs leads to other criminality. When asked why Australia just does not soften its approach to steroids and HGH in line with other civilised countries Mt Stevens was at a loss for words. This is still a crime he said even if there are no victims and we shall pursue all our pathetic polices to the last. When asked did he used HGH to look younger he said “fuck off I like looking old”
