A police search of a home in Adelaide’s inner north has led to a drug bust where more than 320,000 steroid tablets and weapons were seized.
Detectives searched the Prospect house on Saturday and found the drug lab, which police say had several chemicals, 200 vials containing liquid anabolic steroids and the tablets.
Police say they also found and seized specialist commercial equipment – including a pill press, scales and a labelling machine – as well as a taser, 11 double-edged knives, knuckle dusters and an improvised explosive device.
A 48-year-old man from the home was arrested and charged with manufacturing prescription drugs, trafficking prescription drugs and weapons offences.
He was refused bail and was due to appear in the Port Adelaide Magistrates Court on Monday.
