Officials at the facilities of Lebanon’s Countryside YMCA said the YMCA and other workout places received a bad rap after a big steroid bust created misconceptions.

“Most of the investigation was beyond our walls,” said Mike Carroll, the Y’s president.

Carroll contacted authorities in early 2010 about concerns over alleged attempted steroid sales at the Y that led to an extensive investigation that snared 32 suspects in six counties so far.

  Steroid sentencing

Who knew the FBI was involved with steroid busts? wasn’t that only the DEA?  We thought the FBI was concentrating on such things as terrorism not steroids.  Although there is a surprise in this steroid bust, the time of the sentencing.  It seems the time in jail for steroid distribution has been going down.  At the start of the anti-steroid agenda, steroid producers were getting 4-10 years, insane sentencing for some white collar worker who was just selling steroids to friends.  Now, the sentencing has gone down, with this latest steroid bust ending up with about 16 months in jail, that’s roughly 10-12 months with good behavior.

This might be related to the steroid dealer who was busted for selling steroids on myspace, so that’s possible as to the reason why the FBI was involved.  Otherwise, it would seem very strange.

An Arizona man has been sentenced to 16 months in prison for distributing anabolic steroids over the Internet.

Forty-year-old Brian Jeffery of Bullhead City appeared in Hartford federal court on Thursday.

Authorities say that on two occasions, an undercover FBI agent exchanged e-mails with Jeffery, placed orders for the anabolic steroids dianabol and testonogen and received the steroids in the mail.

Prosecutors say Jeffery admitted that he bought raw steroid powder from suppliers in China and converted it into forms that could be injected and taken by mouth. They say he sold at least 10,000 units of anabolic steroids from March through June of last year.

Jeffery has been detained since his arrest last September.

  Steroid bust for a football player

football_steroidsIt seems that former high school quarterbacks are targets of government ‘serious’ investigations into steroid abuse. The problem of cocain, crack, meth, ecstacy, alcohol, smoking and obesity have already been fixed by the governments’ every so efficient system, now it’s time to concentrate on STEROIDS! It seems government officials set up a sting where some rat snitch wanted to buy steroids , so he called Jared Foster asking for steroids (entrapment?). It seems Jared Foster was induced into selling steroids via governments’ use of his friend. Using other people as bait is illegal, no matter what the courts have ruled.

A former Madison County high school quarterback has been indicted on charges of selling steroids.

Nineteen-year-old Jared Foster of Madison was released on $5,000 bond after an appearance in Madison County Circuit Court. He entered a plea of innocent and waived arraignment.

Prosecutors say the case will likely go to trial in September.

Foster was arrested in Oxford in January after allegedly selling anabolic steroids to an informant on Oct. 5, 2007. He was dismissed from the University of Mississippi football team in January.

The former Madison Central High School standout had played in 2007 at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College. He had been enrolled in classes at Ole Miss and was informally working out with the team.

  Women accused of steroid smuggling

Posted By

law_minnesota steroids

First of all, how the heck do steroids mix with protected wildlife?

Two east Metro women were indicted Monday in connection with smuggling protected wildlife into the state.

So they got wildlife and steroids ???

Pa Lor of Oakdale and 36-year-old Tia Yang of Lake Elmo were each charged Monday with one count of conspiracy to smuggle wildlife and one count of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute steroids.

Ok, these women somehow brought elephants into the USA and sold them at a market in St. Paul? how the hell do you get a Leopard or Elephant past customs? let’s face it, it’s not a 5lbs. rat!

Their indictment alleges that from 2005 to 2006, the two women brought wildlife into the state and sold them at the International Marketplace in St. Paul. The women sold elephants, giant squirrels, leopard cats, mongooses, and flying squirrels.

Over a span of two years, investigators purchased wildlife from Lor at a booth in the International Marketplace, a booth leased by Yang.

In 2006, authorities executed a search warrant at the market booth and recovered a black-striped weasel, gibbon, leaf monkey, monitor lizard, tapir, slider turtles, and small-clawed otter.

So, how do you tie wildlife smugglers and steroids? or does this seem like a set up? maybe they couldn’t pin anything big on them so they threw in some mainstream media steroid charges to boot?

The two women also illegally purchased 184 units of a substance containing steroids.

Actually this is wrong! the penalty for selling elephants and the other shit they did would only be about 1-2 years in prison tops and not many jury members would feel pissed at them for selling a lizard, but for steroids they can get 5 years in jail since the bullshit media hype and lies about steroid use.  Sounds like these 2 ladies were set up!

If convicted, both Lor and Yang face potential maximum penalties of five years in prison on the smuggling count and five years on the steroid count.

  British Dragon Steroid Bust

Posted By
Pin it Share on Tumblr

steroid-bustJust recently everyone was up in arms about the british dragon steroid bust. After almost 10 years in business, the producers and sellers of anabolic steroids – british dragon, were finally busted. But, there in lies the problem. The steroid bust raised a ton of speculation as to why and how British Dragon was busted. From snitches to local stings, everyone had ideas. We even raised our suspicions about why british dragon steroid lab was busted. However, the bust seems to be very clearly a multi part job. Let’s explain the details:

1) A package is sent by British Dragon carelessly, at least 500 vials, some broke and were intercepted by USA customs. If it was a large enough package, 1000 vials plus, a real shipping company could have been used with ties back to BD anabolics.  You don’t buy steroids in bulk under 1000 vials it would seem, let’s face it – 1 bodybuilder can use 10 vials in 1 cycle!  Steroids should be counted in 10 vials not 1 vial, 10 pills not 1 pill because of low dosage production.

2) Once the steroid package was seized, a sting operation was set up on the receiver; once the guy got the huge package, they arrested him and put the heat on him. When he was dealing with british dragon, he was probably dealing in the 1000s of vials, means that minimum payment to British Dragon steroids was at least $25,000 US Dollars, an amount probably sent by wire transfer.

3) Using the payment information, the companies in the names of the British Dragon owners were traced back to the company owners, and a sting operation was set up. They contacted local authorities and set up a sting to bust british dragon.  Obviously they had to put pressure for local authorities to help with anabolic steroids because local authorities where British Dragon was know steroids are LEGAL there!

4) On top of this, a recently released steroid convict (who was arrested on steroid distribution charges before) was probably the person to snitch out british dragon, confirming who they are from previous money trails.

Take a look at this steroid bust from Texas, should show you how things work:

But it was a different kind of recklessness that eventually brought Mr. Jacobs down.

A bad packing job, actually.

On March 19, 2007, the United Parcel Service intercepted a soggy package sent from Mr. Jacobs’ Plano home, bound for Wichita, Kan. When officials opened the box, they found a broken glass vial of what turned out to be steroids.

Authorities arrested the man in Kansas who had ordered steroids from Mr. Jacobs, court documents say. Jamie Mongeau, an amateur bodybuilder, told investigators that Mr. Jacobs was his supplier.

  Operation “paranoid steroid users”

Posted By
Pin it Share on Tumblr

It seems the “steroid community” has gone wild with speculation as to how British Dragon and Redicat were busted.  There is no government conspiracy nor major drug stings.  Everyone needs to learn the Occam’s razor principle.   So, what’s Occam’s razor?

“All other things being equal, the simplest solution is the best.” In other words, when multiple competing theories are equal in other respects, the principle recommends selecting the theory that introduces the fewest assumptions and postulates the fewest entities.

There was not secret DEA sting or steroids bust, simple answer is: British Dragon and Redicat were ratted out.  The list of possible rats is so long, we are not sure where to start.  Think of it this way, any one of the 100s of clients could have known who BD and RC were and how they ran their steroid operation.  Let’s face it, on the 10000000+1 steroid forums, everyone always mentioned that British Dragon and Redicat were British citizens living in thailand, on top of that it was known in the OPEN that they were in pattaya.   This is not some amazing secret, this is fairly well known information, and would take any newbie bodybuilder about 2hours to find out via the search function.

Obvious answer on this steroid bust: British Dragon and Redicat were snitched out , done and done!

How? Doesn’t necessarily matter, the point is as steroid wholesalers they were set up to be doomed at some point.  At one point, one of their sellers would get busted, and they would be ratted out.  Steroids are like this, it’s not like coke dealers.  Rat out a steroid dealer, nothing happens to you; you get an easy out of jail card.  Rat out a coke dealer, your family gets executed by some low life thugs.   That’s the big difference.  Steroids aren’t really drugs, they are just aids.

  British Dragon + Redicat busted – Steroid Lab Closed

Posted By
Pin it Share on Tumblr

british-dragon-redicat-steroidsIt seems the curtain has finally settled on the guys from the old era of British Dragon and Redicat (paper anabolics). Of course, it was only a matter of time. Like anything in life, all good things come to an end, no matter what they are. In the case of British Dragon steroids, it seemed the last entrenched owners, Redicat and Ox kept their operation going way past it’s due date. In general, the US government tries to go after big dealers, wholesalers, since they are much easier to catch then retailers. Come now, try catching a guy sending steroids from Bosnia or Moldova, maybe a few hundred USD per order, how you going to pick him up? just too complex. Plus, it’s not worth the effort unless they are selling steroids in the USA, like a lab.

Now, in the case of, Redicat and British Dragon (no need to put their names since we’ll post them a little later via news story), they were busted based on a strong DEA sting. From the news reports, it was clear that Redicat and British Dragon sold their anabolic steroids via company they set up: Nutri Med. Co. Ltd. No, we DO NOT have insider information, this was just in the news story. More likely then not, as wholesalers they accepted large amounts of cash from distributors. It’s possible that a large intercepted package stateside, 200-500 vials (just a guess here) got caught up by customs, they set up the buyer (obviously a dealer) and the buyer told the DEA all the payment information and such for the steroids he got from British Dragon. That seems to be the most logical explanation from the news story.

In reality, operational safety was their real problem. We’ve heard from sources, including Anthony, that Redicat and British Dragon owners have met people in Thailand who they just built “trust” with over the internet. This was for possible business dealing. Would you think this is a safe thing to do? you can’t even get DVD bootleggers in China to meet you for a 5min lunch over some Mission Impossible DVD, how the hell do steroid king pins allow this?

Of course, we don’t know the whole story to a T, but we can deduct that the FEDs are going after steroids because the real “drug war” is a failure. More and more cocaine is entering the USA and heroin from Afghanistan has reached record levels, don’t forget the worst drug in the world, methamphetamine. Meth use is not down, and with the economic depression, it will only keep going up. So, instead of coming after the real problems, we’ll just come after the easy problems like anabolic steroids.

The truth, in the end of the day, of all these busts, is that steroids will go underground to the hardcore black market. What the US government (DEA) is doing, is pushing steroids into a more deep hole, where it will not recover. At some point, they will wipe out so much steroid stock, that the industry will be taken over by crime syndicates. We are talking about running steroids along with coke and other drugs, where it becomes a hardcore blackmarket – with no brakes! Right now, all steroids are provided by just regular bodybuilders and weightlifters, who are generally white collar workers before they get into steroids or bodybuilding. They don’t commit crimes, they don’t do recreational drugs, they are just ordinary citizens trying to look good via anabolics, and help out other bodybuilders. Now, once you drive all the legit white collar guys out, you’ll get the 50 gangster thugs with AK-47s and Mac-10s blasting at you when you’re trying to enter and bribing all government officials so they can disappear! Keep this in mind, the next steroid providers wont be the guys who help the local disabled weightlifting team and work with charities, it’ll be the corner gangsters with AK-47s because there is no other way. The industry is there, and once the legitimate channels are shut down, it’s only a matter of time until someone comes in to fill the void. There is no ways around it!

BRITISH STEROID GANG APPREHENDED IN PATTAYA BY DEA AND THAI POLICE
100 Drug Enforcement Administration (D.E.A.) officers, equipped with arrest warrants, in co-operation with Thai police, today arrested a British gang selling steroids illegally in Soi Chaiyapreuk, Pattaya and seized assets worth over Bt 20 million
At 8.00 am, 21 March, 2008, Police Major General, Amaresrit Wattanawiboon, Commander of Office of the Narcotics Control Board,(ONCB) who had been co-ordinating with Mr.Andre Kellum, an officer of the D.E.A, acknowledged that there was a gang of foreigners who were running a network selling steroid in Pattaya.

The police and D.E.A. officers, acting on arrest warrant no. 98/255, searched a two-storey house in Pattaya New City Village, Soi Chaiyapreuk , Jomtien Beach Road. The police later arrested Mr.Edwin Richard Crawley (44) a British national who lives in the house, which he had used as the centre of operations for his business. According to the police report, Mr. Edwin Richard Crawley originally opened a company called” Nutri Med. Co. Ltd.” registered as an import-export company. However, police did not find any illegal items or incriminating evidence, only documents relating to the import and export of goods.

Another police team also searched a single house opposite and found Mr. Graisorn Tongrak (31) the son- in-law of Mr.Edwin Richard Crawley, who was looking after the house for his father- in-law. Once again, police did not find any illegal items.

After that, the police took both suspects to search another building in the same soi, registered as a company called” Vincent Centre Service Co. Ltd. operating a postal and utility bill payment service. Here, however, police found several empty bags of drugs, called “British Dragon” and 2,500 copies of steroid instruction sheets.

The D.E.A. officers took the steroids away for evidence. They also searched a warehouse behind the Nutri Med. company office, where they found and confiscated two machines used to pack steroids and also seized two land deed papers relating to the two houses, a Toyota car, a BMW R1200 RT motorbike, and 13 bank books which contained millions of baht; in total property worth about Bt 20 million

A third group of police later arrested Mr.Ashley Vincent Livingston (45) British, and Mrs. Jirawan Livingston(38) , his wife, living at a house in Moo. 10, Soi Kow Noi, Pattaya Hill 1. According to the information police had received, they all belonged to the same gang, whose big boss was Edwin Richard Crawley. At this house, the police did not find any evidence, but seized a land deed paper, a Honda and a Toyota car, jewellery, Bt 100,000 in cash, and six bank books, which had many tens of millions of baht in the accounts. Police Major General, Amaresrit Wattanawiboon, revealed that Thai police were originally notified by the D.E.A. that they had intercepted steroids, which had been delivered to America in plain envelopes and on investigation, discovered that the biggest operation was in Pattaya . Mr. Edwin (the big boss) had been importing steroids from China through the Internet and then forwarding them to USA and Europe. On receipt, customers would send money to his account in Thailand. Some of the goods were sent to Pattaya and repacked in dolls or fruit, to be sent to Europe by parcel or in plain envelopes. Mr. Ashley had been worked with Mr. Edwin as his assistant, finding customers for him. This operation had been running since 1999. It made him a millionaire, being able to afford to buy property in Pattaya worth Bt 20 million. Mr. Edwin was also a volunteer, helping charities in Pattaya, so he was well known among the high-society set. He is also the coach of a disabled weight lifting team, which has won many trophies.

Despite Mr. Edwin’s other good works, police arrested him and the other gang members, committing them for trial on charges of having imported, possessed and exported illegal drugs as well as not having paid tax. After a Thai trial, they will all be sent to America for further processing.

  Man arrested for steroid possession

It seems that the rule is true, don’t share your steroid use with anyone.  This guys’ girlfriend used his steroid use to call the cops and lie about what happened, and get him in trouble.  Seems like they are possibly divorcing and she’s throwing everything she has at him, even his steroid use.

On Monday, Scott County deputies responded to Pullam’s residence on a complaint of a domestic problem. There they were told Pullam got mean when he used drugs. An investigation revealed the suspect allegedly ordered the drug Trenbolone and syringes from the Internet.

  Steroid dealer bust

This bust happened in Nashua, wtf is Nashua ? turns out it’s some redneck town in New Hampshire with a population of about 50.  No wonder the cops have nothing better to do then to bust steroids.

Last known, the local politicians had a bit of a problem with the economy, hmm let’s not concentrate on the economic failures of our city, but rather concentrate on steroids.  Of course! that draws attention away from the real problems.  After all steroids are really the problem everyone should talk about haha!

 A Nashua man pleaded guilty Tuesday to federal charges he ran a steroids ring out of his Lake Street home.

Then again, is the government to blame for this guys being goofy? He took payments in greetings cards, i.e. showed his face at some mailbox to pick up the money from selling steroids.  Is that smart? I mean for the buyer for the anabolic steroids, when you buy steroids do you think it’s smart to send $ to some guy thru the mail system?  Wouldn’t it be safe to say that the seller is probably being watched by the same people who sent $ to purchase their steroids batch but were government officials.  Let’s face it, use some common sense.

Cashmon mailed the steroids to buyers around the country, receiving payments through wire and electronic transfers and cash hidden in greeting cards
