A man has today been charged in connection with an alleged international network of illegal anabolic steroid smuggling.
Jacob Sporon-Fiedler, 37, a Mumbai-based Danish national, is due to appear at Uxbridge Magistrates' Court tomorrow (Tuesday 27 March) charged with conspiracy to import and export a controlled Class C drug.
A National Crime Agency investigation was launched in 2014 following the seizure of more than 630 kilos of anabolic steroids and prescription medicines by Border Force officers at Heathrow Airport, destined for an address in Belfast. The investigation, which is ongoing, has so far led to seizures worth an estimated £30 million.
Sporon-Fiedler was charged after answering bail at Heathrow Police Station.
