SBU stops Dnipro-based smuggling of anabolic steroids to EU and USA
The SBU officers under the procedural supervision of the Prosecutor's Office in Dnipro stopped large-scale smuggling of anabolic steroids to the countries of the European Union and the USA.
The law enforcers established that the smuggling was organized by the local resident who involved in the illegal business his own wife and a former star bodybuilder. The dealers created and administered several foreign-registered websites used for receiving orders from customers. The goods were sent by international postal services. Money from customers was transferred to the offenders’ bank cards.
SBU operatives detained the organizer on sending overseas some 100 pills of banned drugs.
While searching of the offenders’ residences the SBU officers seized more than 200 pills of potent and poisonous substances, almost UAH 60,000 (USD 2,142) in cash, invoices of international postal items and bank cards, which confirm the illegal activity of the “businessmen”.
SBU investigators initiated the criminal proceeding under Part 2 Article 201 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. Urgent investigations are ongoing.
