British sellers of fake Hygetropin busted in 2009 now face asset seizure.

Confiscation proceedings against two Rotherham men convicted of drugs offences in 2009 have been adjourned until April.

Bodybuilders Richard Flynn, aged 40, of Manor Close, and Christopher Taylor, 45, of Haugh Green, both from Rawmarsh, received suspended prison sentences for conspiring to sell and supply class C drugs, including steroids.

The duo’s conviction followed a joint investigation by South Yorkshire Police and the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency.

Now they face being stripped of their assets under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

Police have estimated that Flynn has assets of £292,000 while Taylor has £283,000.

Their case will be heard at Sheffield Crown Court.
