Large Delivery of Contraband Steroids Caught on the Bulgarian Border

Large quantities of anabolic steroids were discovered in an autobus by Bulgarian border inspectors at the “Lesovo” checkpoint.

On December 5, 2017 the border inspectors at the “Lesovo” checkpoint in Bulgaria performed a thorough search of an autobus with Bulgarian registration plates. According to released information, the bus was traveling to Razgrad. During the search, the inspectors uncovered 174 bottles with an unknown solution, 267 packaging of 100 tablets and 33 packaging of 50 tablets. Experts were summoned to clarify the discovered substances.

After field tests were performed, it was revealed that the solutions and tablets contained anabolic steroids, which were to be illegally smuggled into the country. The bus’s driver A.A and a passanger I.I, both of which are from Razgrad, have been arrested and sent to the Border Police Office in Elhovo. Both the steroids and the vehicle have been confiscated and alternative transport has been organized for the remaining passengers.
