One student has been found with anabolic steroids and authorities say they suspect students from several Northwest Georgia Schools may be involved in the use of these drugs.
Anabolic steroids are controversial drugs used to enhance muscle mass and improve athletic performance.
A spokesperson said on Tuesday the Special Operations Division of the Calhoun, Ga. Police Department, after an extensive investigation, executed a search warrant on a vehicle in the parking lot of the Calhoun High School.
They say the vehicle belonged to a student who allegedly was selling anabolic steroids to other juveniles at the school.
They say they found “numerous vials and pills of suspected anabolic steroids,” along with “anabolic steroid paraphernalia.”
The unidentified juvenile was taken into custody and later released to his parents.
Sgt J. Marquez, Commander of the Special Operations Division said, “This is an ongoing investigation. The investigation has indicated students from several Northwest Georgia Schools may be involved in the use of these drugs.
