Illegal doping substances came to Poland in packages from China. In order not to recognize them – as officials of the National Revenue Administration inform – they were hidden in packages of dog food.
As the Pomeranian National Tax Administration informed, its officers found out how steroids are smuggled into our country.
It turns out that criminals were hiding illegal drugs in dog food packages. And so they sent them to Poland. In total, ten such packages were detected in the period from 9 to 26 July this year.
Steroids worth over 100,000 zlotys
– A total of 10.13 kilograms of pharmaceuticals worth about PLN 100,000 were seized. About 10,000 doses can be produced from the amount of retained goods – Wioleta Działdowska from the Tax Administration Chamber in Gdańsk told us.
The services determine who is responsible for smuggling and whether the funds were to be distributed in Poland. For illegal marketing of medicinal products, without the required permit, there is a risk of up to two years in prison.
