"COLUMBUS, Ohio — A steroid ring uncovered in Ohio used drugs imported from China and processed at a secret lab in Tennessee to peddle drugs to high school athletes and other customers with a business model that implemented techniques such as bonuses and rebates, authorities said Tuesday.

A grand jury north of Cincinnati in Warren County indicted 32 people in the operation on charges that include engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity, trafficking drugs and drug possession, according to police and prosecutors. Those charged include a bank manager, a financial planner, a delivery truck driver, a professional wrestler, a health club manager and a stay-at-home mom, and most have turned themselves in and are being held in the county jail, said Prosecutor David Fornshell.

Authorities have seized more than $600,000 in steroids, about $300,000 in cash and vehicles, and a number of assault rifles and other firearms, some used for security at the lab and others that appear to be collected."
