Spanish police arrest people suspected of manufacturing fake doping substances

Police in Barcelona on Friday arrested 12 people suspected of manufacturing fake doping substances that may have caused the death of a bodybuilder.

The arrests have allowed investigators to break up a doping ring that circulated "falsified doping medication" police said in a statement.

The dead bodybuilder, a 28-year old man, had bought substances from the group, the statement said.

The doping substances, aimed mainly at bodybuilders, were sold for between EUR300-EUR500 (US$400-$668) for a 10-week treatment, police said.

One of those arrested had taken part in a recent regional bodybuilding competition as a judge, police said.
