    Bodybuilding.com Raided in Criminal Steroid Investigation on Eve of IFBB Olympia Weekend
    by Millard Baker

    The federal government continued their steroid witch-hunt targeting the dietary supplement industry with a raid of Bodybuilding.com on Thursday, September 24, 2009. The criminal investigation accuses Bodybuilding.com and its corporate officers of illegal marketing and distributing several anabolic steroids, unapproved new and misbranded drugs labeled fraudulently as dietary supplements, specifically “Madol”, “Tren”, “Superdrol”, “Androstenedione”, and “Turinabol”.

    Only androstenedione and Turinabol are legally classified as anabolic steroids; these ingredients were not disclosed on the product labels. The FDA has asserted that Madol, Tren and Superdrol are also anabolic steroids. However, only the DEA has the authority to administratively add these substances to the Controlled Substances list. The DEA has NOT yet made this determination. These ingredients have been widely and openly sold as listed ingredients in dietary supplements for years.

    The FDA media strategy most likely intentionally staged the raid to coincide with the first day of the 2009 Olympia Weekend. The Olympia Expo, the centerpiece of the Olympia Weekend, includes a large number of sports nutrition companies as exhibitors. The Bodybuilding.com has had a prominent presence at the Expo for several years and is the main sponsor of the 2009 IFBB Mr. Olympia, the top competition in professional bodybuilding.

    FDA Special Agent Robert Blenkinsop signed the affidavit of support of the search warrant that was executed at Bodybuilding.com Boise headquarters and warehouse. Blenkinsop participated in the FDA raid of American Cellular Labs (ACL) on July 23, 2009; however, ACL products were not distributed by Bodybuilding.com.

    Blenkinsop states that his criminal investigation of Bodybuilding.com led him to investigate several of Bodybuilding.com’s suppliers including, but not limited to, Genetic Edge Technologies (GET), Kilo Sports (KS), and Innovative Delivery Systems (IDS). GET and Kilo Sports were both raided on June 5, 2009; IDS was raided on August 22, 2009.

    The federal government conducted raids and interrogations of suppliers in search of evidence to support the FDA’s criminal investigation of Bodybuilding.com. In addition, the suppliers face their own respective criminal investigation for their role in conspiring with, and/or aiding and abbetting Bodybuilding.com in the illegal marketing and distribution of steroids.

    Federal agents seized laptop computers, desktops and related computer-based evidence of the following Bodybuilding.com employees: Ryan Deluca (CEO); Jeremy Deluca (VP/President); Gary Davis (CFO, Executive VP); Kelly Household (CIO); Bryan Gum (Chief Strategy Officer), Josh Brouse (COO), Joe Guilliams (FDA/FTC Compliance Manager); Dustin Campbell (Purchasing Manager); Michael McClane (CFO); Ryan Vestal (Controller); Terry Mayer (Accounts Payable Manager).

    that is a good thing, still a good product left, now please try to come out with an adrenosterone product at good dose and price as I hear that compound is also still g2g and there are currently few products with this out. It does have to be run high, but at 700+mgs per day is a good compound.

    It appears they are going after active steroids more than precursers. Notice they didn't put CEL's H-drol on the list, as that is NOT turnibol--it's a precursor. Likewise, 1-Andro is a precursor and not being targeted at this point. 600mg/day is working wonders for me.
