  • Print

A Winnipeg man is accused of being at the centre of a steroid importation ring.

Officials with the Canada Border Services Agency released brief details today of an ongoing investigation into the flow of anabolic steroids, and their derivatives, into Canada.

Jason Mark Eggleston, 37, is now facing five charges under the Criminal Code, the Customs Act and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.

None of the allegations have been proven and he is presumed innocent. Eggleston has been released on a promise to appear in court and will make his first appearance in Winnipeg on Jan. 13.

"Smuggling and importing controlled substances is a criminal offence, and the CBSA takes this issue very seriously," says Lauren Delgaty, Regional Director General for the Prairie Region of the CBSA, said in a news release. "The CBSA will investigate and prosecute those engaging in illegal cross-border activity to the full extent of the law."

No other information about the case has been released.
