Police Raid Major Doping Ring

Around 40 people have been taken in for questioning in connection with what is described as one of the biggest investigations here into doping.

The investigation has been carried out by the police in Gävle, north of Stockholm, in connection with the national police board and other local police authorities.

There were raids on 47 locations in 25 communities around the country. The police say the alleged head of the doping ring has been detained in Malmö, with another highly placed member in jail in Gävle.

The operation is said to have been centered around gyms and body-building circles and involves primarily anabolic steroids.
