DEA Announces International Steroid Ring Busted

Big news from the DEA today: A major national steroid lab bust. Results: 143 search warrants, 11.4 million steroid pills seized, 29 people arrested.

The countries that assisted in the 18 month undercover operation: China, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Sweden and Thailand .

Federal agencies: FBI, Internal Revenue Service, U.S. Immmgration and Customs Enforcement and the National Drug Intelligence Center.

News conferences will be held in San Diego, New York City, Houston, Kansas City and Providence, R.I., which I take it to mean those are the districts where Indictments were brought.

    More like a big snooze.  I'm sure producers of roids will be working overtime to replace the 11.4 million pills seized, and 29 other dudes will step up to replace the 29 who got pinched.

    Who benefits besides the DEA?

    I'm sure the meathead at the local Gold's Gym will have a short term problem scoring before a MLB'er will:)

    Too busy jumping the first base umpire to actually get there.

    Bradley may be the one who showed restraint in that incident.  For a change:)
