The National Police has intervened five million doses of anabolics after dismantling three clandestine laboratories, one of them in Bolbaite, where a network elaborated the doping substances to sell them later in gyms, especially to bodybuilders who artificially enhanced their muscles with risk to your health.
The Operation Reappearance has resulted in 29 people arrested, including the one who was Mister Universe 2003, and it started a year ago after detecting the police that a network distributed illegal drugs. The head of this organization, Francisco H. S., a native of Valencia, has a history of drug trafficking, illegal detention and robbery with violence. This individual and two other members of the criminal group put into jail.
The head of the network resided in Madrid, but he traveled frequently to Valencia to meet with the distributors of the anabolic products. The police intervened 50,000 euros at the home of the mother of Francisco H. in Rafelbunyol. One of the three partners of the criminal organization, Manuel Manchado, Mister Universe in 2003, was arrested in Leganés and performed commercial functions to sell the doping substances to bodybuilders in gyms.

The rest of the people arrested in the operation were in charge of storing, packing and distributing the doping substances, which were presented in a very attractive way with boxes and leaflets with their own brand: ‘Spartam’. According to police investigations, the products with which they made the anabolics were imported from China without any sanitary control.

The police conducted 15 records in homes and laboratories, where they intervened five million doses of illegal drugs, seven liters of liquid testosterone, 42,500 doses of ‘ecstasy’, 3,500 of LSD, 5,000 grams of ‘crystal’, 500 grams of ketamine, 800 grams of heroin, 9,000 grams of ‘speed’ and various amounts of cocaine, hashish and marijuana.
The researchers also seized 35,000 euros in cash, two machines to make pills, another to encapsulate the anabolic substances and thousands of cartons of counterfeit medicines. Among the people arrested in the province of Valencia are the mother of the head of the network and Ivan S. J., who was arrested in Carlet, according to legal sources.
