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.
The Parker Police Department arrested a Parker Night Club owner on drug charges.
Parker Police said, Toomas Saarva, a national from Estonia, was arrested at the Grand Slam Bar located in Parker. Saarva has been charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Distribute and Trafficking in a Controlled Substance.
Police has seized over 1000 vials of steroids which were seized at the bar and at Saarva’s residence in Parker. Detective Aaron Wilson tells NewsChannel 7 “This arrest is the largest steroid bust in Parker’s history.” Wilson also believes Saarva was trafficking in Expired Steroids from Estonia via mail, and selling them.
It appears that Saarva was in the United States with an Estonian passport as a visitor. Saarva will also be facing deportation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement in the conclusion of this investigation and court process.
