A University of Waterloo football player suspected of selling steroids and human growth hormone is now facing charges.
23 year old Nathan Zettler was charged with possessing drugs for the purpose of trafficking following a break-in investigation.
At one home, several thousand pills, vials and capsules were seized. Police believe the cache includes anabolic steroids and performance-enhancing drugs.
Through their investigation, Waterloo Regional Police found several types of anabolic steroids, including nandrolone, trenbolone, stanozolol and testosterone, along with a quantity of tamoxifen, a breast cancer drug sometimes used in conjunction with steroids to help reduce water retention.
The seizure of such a large quantity of steroids also sparked fears among Canada’s university sports governing body that police had uncovered a pipeline that could be supplying drugs beyond the Warriors and into the Ontario University Athletics football league.
