2 Arrested for Manufacturing Steroids, Other Pills

Two men are facing charges for allegedly importing steroids and re-selling them illegally.

Manteca Police were doing a probation search on Tuesday when they found the manufacturing and distribution operation.

Investigators learned the two men, identified as Christopher Weise and David Brandow, were ordering dry steroid powder and other pharmaceutical products from Hong Kong. They would then manufacture the steroid into a liquid form for injection, and sell it.

Officers found more than 200 doses were produced and waiting to be packaged inside the building along Lincoln Avenue.

The men were also manufacturing Creatine capsules, Viagra and Cialis variations to counteract the effects of steroids on the body.

Cops say Weise and Brandow went so far as to use “safety seals” and holographic items on their products so they looked legitimate.

Brandow faces charges for the manufacturing and possession of controlled substances.
