Apr 29Authorities arrested two Moore men and one woman on multiple felony…Dakota Epperly, 23,Marcus Wade, 26, andÂ Cortny Choate, 19, are in theÂ Cleveland CountyÂ jail on complaints of conspiracy to manufacture steroids and possession of steroids with intent to distribute, Woodward said.
They were arrested Wednesday after bureau agents and Cleveland County sheriff's deputies executed a search warrant at 417 Madison Court.
Agents said they found steroid powder, liquid steroid compounds, unused glass vials, a vial sealer, scales, empty pill capsules, pill capsule presses, syringes, drug ledgers and labeling equipment during the search, Woodward said. The three appeared to be manufacturing their own brand of steroids called Red Line, he said.
Woodward said investigators were concerned potential customers could think the drugs were safer than they are because of the professional appearance of the packaging.
Agents made undercover buys during an investigation, Woodward said. Investigators think the steroid powder was ordered online fromÂ China, and they would use other materials to convert the powder to a finished product.
