Police: Steroid probe at Ohio YMCA uncovers Tennessee lab

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Authorities say an anabolic steroid ring uncovered in Ohio used drugs imported from China and processed at a secret lab in Tennessee to peddle to high school athletes and other customers.

Warren county officials said Tuesday that a grand jury in Lebanon, north of Cincinnati, indicted 32 people in the operation, including a bank manager, a pro wrestler, and a stay-at-home mom. Charges include engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity, trafficking drugs and drug possession.

Officials say the indictments stem from an undercover operation at a local YMCA that started after they received two unrelated tips.

They say one man in Ohio received drugs from Tennessee and that a suburban Cincinnati man working under him ran a drug-dealing business, offering bonuses and other incentives to dealers with high sales.
