Cops find $25,000 of steriods in Gold Coast 'bikie' bust

Detectives targeting bikie gangs on the Gold Coast have uncovered about $25,000 worth of steroids. The Taskforce Maxima officers found steroid tablets, vials and syringes during a search at a Runaway Bay home on Tuesday morning. A 26-year-old man has been arrested and charged with three counts of possessing dangerous drugs and two counts of possessing restricted drugs. He’ll appear in Southport Magistrates Court on September 19. Detective Inspector Brendan Smith says the find, estimated to have a street value of about $25,000, is the result of an ongoing investigation of a steroid ring involving Rebels bikie gang members. “We are seeing users increasingly involved in crimes of violence and with ongoing health problems,” Det Insp Smith said. “Our investigations reveal how these gangs do not limit themselves to traditional offences, they identify vulnerable members of the community and exploit them. “They are opportunistic and make use of their networks to further their criminal enterprises.” https://au.news.yahoo.com/a/24813126/cops-find-gold-coast-bikie-steroids-haul/
