  Man caught with steroids strapped to his body

Man caught with steroids strapped to his bodyAfter a flight from Bangkok, a man was detected to have carried steroids by strapping it to his legs. Custom officials ran a frisk search on the 35-year old man and found a total of 655 vials and 575 tablets strapped to his legs. There were additional vials, tablets seized totaling to almost 1,200, Customs, and Border Protection said in a statement.

Based on a questioning conducted by Melbourne Airport authority, the steroids were obtained in Thailand. Thailand, together with Mexico, is one of the few countries where these substances are available over the counter with or without a valid prescription.

During baggage examination, a device resembling a mobile phone was also confiscated. It was discovered to be an electric shock device.

In Australia, anabolic steroids must be obtained with a valid prescription, usually from a general practitioner. Without a prescription, a criminal offense is committed. Fines for importing performance enhancing drugs can reach $110,000 Australian dollars. Maximum imprisonment could last as long as five years. Whether steroids were obtained from other countries, bought online or from dealers, possession without a valid prescription is illegal.

Ignorance of the law excuses no one, not even Sly who was caught before with 48 vials of HGH as he visited the country.

From the Heraldsun:

A MAN allegedly detected with more than 1200 vials and tablets of steroids strapped to his legs has been intercepted by customs officials.

  TWO ATHLETES FACE TWO-YEAR BAN

no-doping-steroidsTwo Australian athletes will be facing a two-year ban from their respective sports. Weightlifter and former sprinter Jane Dike and sprinter Andrew Muhlhan were identified by the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) to have tested positive for anabolic steroids banned in sporting competitions.

Muhlhan raised the fact that the timing of the test was not within international standards of sample collection. He protested the charge by ASADA and raised this argument in court. ASADA, however, submitted an appeal to the Australian Federal Court and eventually managed an overturn.

ASADA is Australia’s doping control authority. Richard Ings, ASADA’s chairman, hopes that steroid testing will continue in Australian sports and that the investigations would serve as legitimate control over performance enhancing drugs. ASADA used target testing on Muhlhan. This means that he was chosen based on abnormal biological parameters (blood and steroid profile), injury, sudden changes in his career, or sudden improvement in his performance. Unfortunately for Australian athletes, ASADA can conduct tests whether a few hours before the competition or completely outside the competition

  Australian cager gets banned for importing steroids

knox_raiders_steroidsA basketball player for the Knox Raiders in the winter South East Australian Basketball League gets a two-year ban for importing steroids. The Australian Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) made the announcement Thursday.

It was reported that Paul McMaster was searched by Australian Customs officials February this year on his return trip from Southeast Asia. Authorities found numerous tablets in his possession, which were later identified as two types of anabolic steroids.

ASADA said the basketballer confessed to his use of anabolic steroids and waived his right to a hearing. McMaster is eligible to return to the sport in June 2010.

Incidentally, it was also in the month of February 2007 when Hollywood’s big star Sly Stallone was stopped by Customs officers at Sydney airport after 48 vials of human growth hormone (HGH) were found in his luggage. Subsequent searches were conducted on the actor’s private jet and luxury hotel room. Further evidence was reportedly discovered at his hotel suite relating to his importation of illegal compounds.

On May 2007, he was formally convicted of importing banned compounds into Australia and was ordered to pay $9,870 in fines and court costs.

In one of his interviews relating to his HGH use, Stallone stated: “As you get older, the pituitary gland slows and you feel older, your bones narrow. This stuff gives your body a boost and you feel and look good. Doing Rambo is hard work and I am going to be in Burma for a while. Where do you think I am going to get this stuff in Burma?”

Stallone flew to Sydney in February 16, 2007 to promote his film Rocky Balboa.

In his February 2008 interview with Time Magazine, Stallone justified his use of HGH: “Testosterone to me is so important for a sense of well-being when you get older. Everyone over 40 years old would be wise to investigate it because it increases the quality of your life. Mark my words. In 10 years it will be over the counter.”

  Aussie CBD killer blames cocktail of illegal drugs, alcohol and steroids for the shootings (Oh, these criminals would even blame their dogs for their bad behavior!)

hells-angelsHells Angels’ bikie Christopher Wayne Hudson received a life sentence with a minimum of 35 years for his murderous rampage which took place June 18, 2007 in the crowded Central Business District of Melbourne.

The 31-year-old Hudson seriously wounded his girlfriend Kara Douglas and Paul de Waard while fatally shooting Brendan Keilar. The shooting happened in broad daylight, around 8:20 in the morning, as CBD employees rushed to work.

Hudson claimed the shootings were not planned, suggesting that his overindulgence of steroids, amphetamines, and alcohol was what had driven him to commit the atrocious crime.

Judge Paul Coghlan’s sentencing of Hudson on September 22 was welcomed by Australians who were shocked by the event. The Herald Sun reported from inside the court during the sentencing, painting a seemingly calm Hudson.

Hudson sat impassively as the judge read out his sentencing remarks in the Supreme Court, a few hundred metres from the scene of the carnage that brought the whole city centre to a standstill.

When he was brought into the prisoners dock this morning Hudson turned round and smiled at a number of heavily tattooed mates who were at the back of the packed court.

Some wore Hells Angels colours and T-shirts and after the sentence they consoled Hudson’s father outside the court.

Hudson pleaded guilty to one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder and one count of intentionally causing serious injury.

He also pleaded guilty to one count of being a prohibited person to use an unregistered firearm – a charge laid over a separate incident days earlier involving AFL Collingwood star Alan Didak.

Justice Coghlan decribed Hudson’s behavior as ‘appalling’  and the shooting spree that transpired at the corner of Flinders Lane and William St. as a crime that “shocked the public conscience”.

“These events occurred at a place where ordinary are entitled to feel safe,” Justice Coghlan said.

“Two of your victims were not known to you and were shot for doing no more than trying to help the young woman you were assaulting. She was shot too.

“None of your victims represented any threat to you, imagined or otherwise,” Judge Coghlan continued.

Forty-three-year old Keilar, a solicitor and a father of three, died at the scene. De Waard, then 25-year-old backpacker from the Netherlands, was shot two times in the chest and once in the abdomen. Douglas sustained serious gunshot wounds and had a kidney removed due to injuries.

Keilar and De Waard played good Samaritans, but paid high price for it. When the two saw Hudson dragging Douglas from a taxi by the hair, they tried to come to her rescue. That was when Hudson pulled out a gun and shot at the three victims.

A few hours prior to that fatal incident, Hudson physically assaulted Autumn Daly-Holt, a stripper at one of St. King’s numerous night clubs. His vicious attack on Daly-Holt was caught on security cameras.

Hudson had figured in numerous altercations with the law with 60-plus prior convictions. Many of his crimes were against women and involved the use of weapons. Six days before the CBD shootings, Hudson reportedly fired a pistol from the window of his car. AFL’s Alan Didak had been with Hudson during the incident. Apparently the two were drinking together earlier in the evening.

Hudson is currently appealing the verdict.

  Steroids to Australia

australia, steroidsAustralia, who has arguably the worst steroids laws and customs tightness + insanity about steroid use right after the USA (USA and Australia are on the same toss up), has busted some british guy for personal possession of steroids. He was coming from thailand with a personal stash of steroids, they stopped him at the airport and claimed he had a dealers quantity of steroids.

First, he only had about 3000 dbol tablets which would last 1 bodybuilder only about 1 year! so not that huge really. On top of that he wasn’t even suspicious, as I imagine people are being pulled by customs in Australia for no reason at all.

Second, why does Australia care about steroids so much? when Australia has one of the biggest hosts of domestic problems of any country in the world – steroids are the LAST thing on the list. Drought, bad economy, bad government, corruption and so on are the huge problems in Australia ignored by useless /mindless government spending on steroid probes and steroid busts.

Third, isn’t busted people for 5 years on a personal use charge no worse then what singapore did to that AU citizen who carried some recreational drugs and got caught (it was cocaine maybe?). He was some poor Vietnamese guy (Australian citizen) who was sentenced to death after being caught at the airport smuggling some cocaine or heroin into Singapore. Nonetheless, even knowing that a gang set him up, singapore executed him. AU was outraged, but isn’t what they are doing to steroid users and steroids in general the same thing? Let’s face it, it’s pot calling the kettle back in this case. If you’re so worried about steroids, you shouldn’t dictate to other countries how they look at their drug issues. And, fyi, ironically, singapore doesn’t give a shit about steroids, so they have my respect.

  Another arrest in Australia

This arrest was more downlow, a bit of traffic stop with steroids involved.

ACT police stopped the car on the Federal Highway in Canberra’s north this morning.

During a search of the vehicle, officers allegedly found 375 vials of steroids.

375 vials of steroids, shouldn’t be that bad considering that they are not worth $100,000 as claimed by the authorities there.  Let’s do the math, $375 * $20/vial = $7,500 USD, about $92,500 USD SHORT! of the claimed sum in the steroid bust.  An average steroid cycle is about 10-15 vials, so this was enough for what, about a years supply for the 2 bodybuilders.  Nothing major when you look at the facts!

  Australia cracking down on steroids again

australia steroidsThis time it wasn’t that bad. A guy was fined for smuggling steroids in AU inside some peanut jars; however, they don’t tell you the whole story. The guy DID NOT personally bring the tablets to AU, he actually used a mail carrier. Thus, he didn’t smuggle anything in. At least this time the penalty wasn’t so bad.

Brisbane man has been fined $11,000 for attempting to smuggle more than 17,000 steroid tablets into Australia inside tins of peanuts.

Looks like he only got about $11,000 AU in costs and some $999 in ancillary costs, so it’s not like the past arrests the AU has done. In the past, I know they have mustered up wasting AU tax dollars on running down alleged steroid dealers. Last estimate was that over $15,000,000 AU dollars was spend on steroid investigations in Australia. What a waste of tax dollars if you ask me! I think the great people of Australia have the right to see their tax money spent on real social problems, not the chasing down of bodybuilders.
