An Aberglasslyn man will face court in Newcastle on Tuesday after police have allegedly seized a commercial quantity of anabolic steroids from a home in that suburb on Monday.
The charges follow a month's long investigation into the supply of anabolic steroids in the Maitland area.
Investigators attached to the Port Stephens-Hunter drug unit executed a warrant at a home on Lapwing Street where they allegedly found and seized 233 vials, containing 2.3 litres of anabolic steroids, along with 5.2 litres of liquid believed to be anabolic steroids, glassware and chemicals. The items will be forensically examined, police said.
A 31-year-old man was arrested at the home and taken to Maitland Police Station, where he was charged with supplying a prohibited drug in a commercial quantity.
The man has been refused bail to appear at Newcastle Local Court on Tuesday.
