Nationwide performance-enhancing drug ring busted

Rome, March 15 - Nationwide probes into performance-enhancing drugs in gyms, sporting supplies stores and non-professional cycling circuits in Italy led to charges for three people on Friday for alleged illegal steroid use and distribution. Investigators from the Marche city of Ancona who lead the probes said that steroid-based pharmaceuticals including nandrolone, growth hormones, boldenone and testosterone were being ordered by Internet mostly from Greece, Ukraine and Moldova and sold to gym goers and amateur athletes. Vials and tablets worth 11,500 euros were confiscated and a pharmacist is among those being probed, investigators said.
