Two Brisbane men charged by CCC with steroid offences - 23 March
Two Brisbane men were charged on Wednesday (22 March) with alleged illegal steroid offences following a Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) investigation.
The CCC will allege that a search warrant of a 21-year-old man’s Parkinson residence resulted in the location of a quantity of steroids including Methastadoral, Anastrozole, Stanzolol, Tentroxin, Oxandrolone, Letrozole in liquid and tablet forms.
Investigators also seized a number of express parcels from the Parkinson address containing various steroids addressed to customers and ready to post. Parcels contained a quantity of vials of steroids ranging in quantity from two vials up to 20 vials in the various parcels.
A total of $27,500 cash was also seized.
The 21-year-old man was also charged with 1 x Trafficking in a Dangerous Drug under the provision of Section 5 of the Drugs Misuse Act. This man is expected to appear in the Richlands Magistrates Court on 19 April 2017.
Following a separate search of an Archerfield workshop a 44-year-old male was charged with 1 x Permit premises to be used for Trafficking in a Dangerous Drug under Section 11 of the Drugs Misuse Act.
The CCC will allege that a large quantity of steroids in liquid and tablet forms were found in the workshop. The drugs included 103 x vials of Tren, 26 x vials Boldenone, 37 x vials of Sustanon, 24 x vials of Deca, 40 x vials of Masternon, 91 x vials of Testosterone, 12 x vials of Nandrolone, and 21 x bottles of Clenbuterol.
The 44-year-old man is due to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on 19 April 2017.
The search warrants executed yesterday relate to a number of search warrants carried out in Rockhampton last week where two current serving police officers were charged with alleged drug related charges and two civilians with alleged drug and drug paraphernalia offences.
The CCC investigation is ongoing.
As all of these matter are before the courts the CCC is unable to provide any further comment.
In addition to illicit drugs, investigators yesterday located a 26-year-old man at the Archerfield property who is suspected of overstaying his visa and who was handed over to Australian Border Force.
The CCC is an independent agency which ensures public sector corruption is investigated and those who commit criminal offences are placed before the courts.
