OFF THE WIRE
AN alleged Rebels Outlaw Motorcycle Gang member from Caringbah will appear in court next month, charged with importing and possessing steroids.
A joint operation by Customs and Border Protection and the Strike Force Raptor detectives led to the man’s arrest in a supplement store at Cronulla yesterday. Customs and Border Protection intercepted a package from China containing 50 packets of anabolic steroids, police said.
Each packet contained 50 capsules of the prescribed restricted substance.
After police were told, detectives replaced the contents with a fake substance.
The parcel was delivered to a Croydon Street shop and found by police after they raided the property.
A Caringbah man was arrested at the store, police said. A further search warrant on a Lynch Avenue house, Caringbah, resulted in a small amount of steroids and other items being seized.
The man was charged with importing a prohibited import and possessing a prescribed restricted substance.
He was granted bail to appear at Sutherland Local Court on November 17.
Inquiries into a second resident who was not home at the time of the warrant are continuing.
