Police have confirmed that a quantity of steroids were seized following a search of the premises.

Police Sergeant Adam Wall from GMP’s Wigan and Leigh District Tasking Team, said: “While I appreciate this may appear to be an unusual case, I cannot stress how harmful steroids can be when they are in the wrong hands.

“We need to put a stop to this and will continue to take positive action to disrupt those who profit from the illicit supply of all types of drugs including steroids.

“We can only progress our investigations with your help so I’d like to take this opportunity to thank people who have contacted us with information and hope yesterday’s warrant serves as a message that we do take all reports seriously and where possible, will act on them.”
