PARKER — Police on Friday arrested night club owner Toomas Saarva, a 41-year-old Estonia citizen, after seizing more than 1,000 vials of steroids from the Grand Slam bar and Saarva’s home.
The department expects to make more arrests in the case, the largest steroid bust in Parker’s history, Detective Aaron Wilson said.
He said he thinks Saarva, who is in the country with a visitor’s passport, was getting at least some of the steroids from Europe.
The drugs had expiration dates from 2007, Wilson said, but Saarva had covered up the expired labels.
“So, besides injecting an illegal substance, [buyers are] using expired substances, so there may be health issues with that,” Wilson said.
Saarva is being held in Bay County Jail on charges of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and trafficking in a controlled substance. He will face deportation after court proceedings conclude, Wilson said.
