Two Antioch men were arrested Wednesday after police say they were nabbed with steroids and the supplies necessary to make them.
Antioch police investigators arrested Christopher Weise, 38, and Kyle Cicerello, 25, on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance for sale after serving a search warrant at a residence in the 2700 block of Winding Lane at 11:15 a.m., according to a news release from Sgt. Steve Bias. A SWAT team and investigators from the U.S. Postal Inspection Service assisted in serving the warrant.
Both men were taken to County Jail in Martinez.
The search uncovered what police called a “large amount” of steroids, manufacturing equipment and supplies that are used in the production of steroids. Investigators also found several guns.
Weise is on probation for previous steroid sales, Bias said, and is a felon. He also faces charges of being a felon in possession of a gun, Bias said, as well as several other narcotics offenses. Police said he was wanted on an outstanding felony warrant in Stanislaus County.
Cicerello has no prior record, Bias said.
