An early December police raid in Timberlea ended with the shut down of an alleged steroid production lab, resulting in several drug and firearm charges against 27-year-old Daniel Dube. On Dec. 7, Wood Buffalo RCMP executed a search warrant of a residence on Paris Crescent. During the search, officers seized approximately 1.6 liters of liquid steroids, 1.3 kg of raw steroid powders, and 4,500 steroid pills. A pill press as well as other equipment were seized from the lab within the residence. Police say the steroids were produced and labelled as “Phoenix Laboratories.” During the search, police also discovered an undisclosed amount of marijuana, mushrooms and cocaine. Approximately $2,700 in cash was recovered along with a rifle, which officers reported as stored in an unsafe manner. Police say Dube was not authorized to own the weapon. Dube has been charged with the production of anabolic steroids, possession for the purpose of trafficking steroids, possession of cocaine, possession of cannabis marihuana, possession of property obtained by crime, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, unsafe storage of a firearm, and unauthorized possession of a firearm. Dube was released on $15,000 no-cash bail with conditions. His first court appearance was Dec. 23, 2014. http://www.fortmcmurraytoday.com/2014/12/24/rcmp-shut-down-alleged-steroid-production-lab
