On Aug. 6, police in Connecticut charged two men with various drug offenses after a search of their houses uncovered significant quantities of human growth hormone and anabolic steroids. Both men were arrested at their Fairfield homes and booked on charges of drug possession and operating a drug factory. They were both scheduled to appear back in court on Aug. 19.
The investigation that led to the raid was conducted by the Fairfield Police Department and began in April. Investigators allegedly determined that drugs were being distributed through a large network in Fairfield and Bridgeport. Police say the investigation began as a result of suspected distribution of narcotic pain medicine. Detectives then allegedly discovered that anabolic steroids and human growth hormones were also being distributed.
