Gang sold illegal anabolic substances through internet
Agents of the National Police have arrested eight members of an organised group dedicated to the development and distribution of anabolic substances and drugs offered through different websites.
Those arrested got the active ingredient in the country of origin of most of them, Bulgaria, and once in Spain treated them in a clandestine laboratory which was dismantled in Gandia (Valencia).
Some 1,800,000 doses were seized, covering more than 130 types of different substances such as growth hormones, sexual stimulants and anabolic steroids.
The main customers were athletes related to the world of bodybuilding who would receive the products in direct deliveries or via courier.
Investigations began last March when agents learned that several individuals were distributing anabolic products across Spain.
The eight people arrested include seven Bulgarians and one Spaniard.
The distribution process covered all of Spain and products were offered through different websites.
