This one just came down the pipe:
Federal drug officials say they’ve arrested 124 people and busted 56 labs in the largest illegal steroid investigation in U.S. history.
The Drug Enforcement Administration says it busted 56 steroid labs in 27 states.
The 18-month investigation, dubbed “Operation Raw Deal,” targeted traffickers who allegedly imported raw materials from China and used them to make anabolic steroids, human growth hormone and insulin growth factor, the Drug Enforcement Administration said.
“Today we reveal the truth behind the underground steroid market: dangerous drugs cooked up all too often in filthy conditions with no regard to safety, giving Americans who purchase them the ultimate raw deal,” DEA Administrator Karen Tandy said in a statement.
Authorities made arrests in 27 states, including busts in Los Angeles, California; New York City; San Diego, California; Providence, Rhode Island; and Kansas City, Missouri.
They seized more than 530 pounds of raw materials and 11.4 million steroid dosage units in the United States, officials said, enough to supply hundreds of users.
That is going to leave a lot of people wanting…by
