The Busts Keep Coming: Operation Roid Runner

operation_roid_runnerThe Bodybuilding, Sports Nutrition and Steroid community took another hit today as 10 people were arrested for various crimes including delivery of steroids, possession with intent to deliver steroids, possession with intent to deliver ecstasy, possession of drug paraphernalia, misbranding of Ketamine, criminal conspiracy, carrying a firearm without a license and criminal use of a communication facility. It seems that the DEA and FDA are making up for lost time with this being the 3rd raid in the month of November alone (Mississippi steroid ring and AffordableSupplements.com).

Operation Roid Runner was focused on an underground steroid lab known as “Pro Lab” operating out of Pennsylvania. The defendants are all bodybuilders (its almost like they are profiling), and several work in the fitness and supplement industry. “According to the grand jury, Lazaro used the internet to research how to make injectable steroids from powder form and, along with Gillspie, began to manufacture steroids, which they branded “Pro Lab,” at Lazaro’s residence in Freemansburg, Northampton County.”
