British Dragon Founder and Redicat Arrested in Thailand

Posted on 21:25 March 21st, 2008 by Millard Baker

Two of the best-known and most successful internet sources of anabolic steroids have been arrested at a Pattaya seaside resort in Thailand as part of an international sting operation involving the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). They will be extradited to the United States on “charges of using the Internet to illegally export steroids to the United States” (”Two Britons arrested in Thailand after sting operation: police,” March 21)

Police gave the names of the two detained men as Ashly Vincent Livingston, 45, and Edwin Richard Crawly, 44. They were arrested in a sting operation involving US anti-drug agents, police said.

Anthony Roberts called me to identity Edwin Richard Crawly as one of the founders of British Dragon and to identify Ashly Vincent Livingston as Redicat. Anthony broke the story on his blog.

Thai authorities have told the media that the two Britons did not do anything illegal in Thailand. Consequently, they face no charges in Thailand.

Livingston and Crawly set up an online store to sell steroids to customers in the United States. Steroids are legal in Thailand but are a controlled substance in the US.

Additional details are becoming available over the course of the day (”British Steroid Gang Apprehended in Pattaya by DEA and Thai Police,” March 21).

The police later arrested Mr.Edwin Richard Crawley (44) a British national who lives in the house, which he had used as the centre of operations for his business. According to the police report, Mr. Edwin Richard Crawley originally opened a company called” Nutri Med. Co. Ltd.” registered as an import-export company…

Another police team also searched a single house opposite and found Mr. Graisorn Tongrak (31) the son- in-law of Mr.Edwin Richard Crawley, who was looking after the house for his father- in-law…

After that, the police took both suspects to search another building in the same soi, registered as a company called” Vincent Centre Service Co. Ltd. operating a postal and utility bill payment service. Here, however, police found several empty bags of drugs, called “British Dragon” and 2,500 copies of steroid instruction sheets. The D.E.A. officers took the steroids away for evidence. They also searched a warehouse behind the Nutri Med. company office, where they found and confiscated two machines used to pack steroids and also seized two land deed papers relating to the two houses, a Toyota car, a BMW R1200 RT motorbike, and 13 bank books which contained millions of baht; in total property worth about Bt 20 million.

A third group of police later arrested Mr.Ashley Vincent Livingston (45) British, and Mrs. Jirawan Livingston(38) , his wife, living at a house in Moo. 10, Soi Kow Noi, Pattaya Hill 1. According to the information police had received, they all belonged to the same gang, whose big boss was Edwin Richard Crawley. At this house, the police did not find any evidence, but seized a land deed paper, a Honda and a Toyota car, jewellery, Bt 100,000 in cash, and six bank books, which had many tens of millions of baht in the accounts. Police Major General, Amaresrit Wattanawiboon, revealed that Thai police were originally notified by the D.E.A. that they had intercepted steroids, which had been delivered to America in plain envelopes and on investigation, discovered that the biggest operation was in Pattaya . Mr. Edwin (the big boss) had been importing steroids from China through the Internet and then forwarding them to USA and Europe. On receipt, customers would send money to his account in Thailand. Some of the goods were sent to Pattaya and repacked in dolls or fruit, to be sent to Europe by parcel or in plain envelopes. Mr. Ashley had been worked with Mr. Edwin as his assistant, finding customers for him. This operation had been running since 1999. It made him a millionaire, being able to afford to buy property in Pattaya worth Bt 20 million.

The anabolic steroid black market is on the verge of being driven completely underground meaning steroids will likely travel same channels as black market narcotics. Obviously, this makes the use of black market androgens more dangerous than ever.

Two Britons arrested in Thailand after sting operation: police

1 day ago

BANGKOK (AFP) — Two Britons were arrested Friday in the Thai seaside resort of Pattaya on charges of using the Internet to illegally export steroids to the United States, police said.

Police gave the names of the two detained men as Ashly Vincent Livingston, 45, and Edwin Richard Crawly, 44. They were arrested in a sting operation involving US anti-drug agents, police said.

The Britons were picked up on warrants issued by the United States and implemented in cooperation with the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

The men are set to be extradited to the United States as Thai police said they face no charges in the kingdom.

The Britons, who were living in Pattaya with their Thai wives, also had 40 million baht (1.2 million dollars) worth of their assets frozen, police said.

Livingston’s wife was arrested on a separate Thai warrant for drugs charges, police added.

Livingston and Crawly set up an online store to sell steroids to customers in the United States. Steroids are legal in Thailand but are a controlled substance in the US.

Earlier this month, the DEA worked with Thai police on an elaborate sting operation to arrest alleged Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout, who has been charged in New York with conspiracy to provide arms to terrorists.

Bout is being held in Thailand while prosecutors decide whether to bring him before a Thai court before extraditing him to the United States.

BRITISH STEROID GANG APPREHENDED IN PATTAYA BY DEA AND THAI POLICE

[March 22, 2008 ]

100 Drug Enforcement Administration (D.E.A.) officers, equipped with arrest warrants, in co-operation with Thai police, today arrested a British gang selling steroids illegally in Soi Chaiyapreuk, Pattaya and seized assets worth over Bt 20 million

At 8.00 am, 21 March, 2008, Police Major General, Amaresrit Wattanawiboon, Commander of Office of the Narcotics Control Board,(ONCB) who had been co-ordinating with Mr.Andre Kellum, an officer of the D.E.A, acknowledged that there was a gang of foreigners who were running a network selling steroid in Pattaya.

The police and D.E.A. officers, acting on arrest warrant no. 98/255, searched a two-storey house in Pattaya New City Village, Soi Chaiyapreuk , Jomtien Beach Road. The police later arrested Mr.Edwin Richard Crawley (44) a British national who lives in the house, which he had used as the centre of operations for his business. According to the police report, Mr. Edwin Richard Crawley originally opened a company called" Nutri Med. Co. Ltd." registered as an import-export company. However, police did not find any illegal items or incriminating evidence, only documents relating to the import and export of goods.

Another police team also searched a single house opposite and found Mr. Graisorn Tongrak (31) the son- in-law of Mr.Edwin Richard Crawley, who was looking after the house for his father- in-law. Once again, police did not find any illegal items.

After that, the police took both suspects to search another building in the same soi, registered as a company called" Vincent Centre Service Co. Ltd. operating a postal and utility bill payment service. Here, however, police found several empty bags of drugs, called “British Dragon” and 2,500 copies of steroid instruction sheets.

The D.E.A. officers took the steroids away for evidence. They also searched a warehouse behind the Nutri Med. company office, where they found and confiscated two machines used to pack steroids and also seized two land deed papers relating to the two houses, a Toyota car, a BMW R1200 RT motorbike, and 13 bank books which contained millions of baht; in total property worth about Bt 20 million

Mr. Edwin was also a volunteer, helping charities in Pattaya, so he was well known among the high-society set. He is also the coach of a disabled weight lifting team, which has won many trophies.

Despite Mr. Edwin’s other good works, police arrested him and the other gang members, committing them for trial on charges of having imported, possessed and exported illegal drugs as well as not having paid tax. After a Thai trial, they will all be sent to America for further processing.

Yo estoy recibiendo un correo informandome esto desde españa, BUeno por el amigo darth esta en la onda, la informacion mas exacta fue que con informacion de la DEA que sacaron del banco de datos de la difunta BRITISH DRAGON logranron la captura de estos dos señores de los anabolizantes y no solo eso segun MESORX seran deportados a USA y seran jusgados cual traficantes de drogas, eso supestamente le espera a toda aquella persona que haya negociado roids con cualquier pasi que tenga tratado de extradicion con USA.

REDYCAT es conocido tambien con los NIKS: THECAT o ELGATO (este ultimo en españa y mexico de donde hace rato no operaba prque la PGR y la DEA le tenian precisado segun mis fuentes).

A de aquel pobre cristiano que caiga en un montaje teatral de este tipo que esta montando la DEA por doquier, ojo amigos en ELITE hay mucha gente de la DEA pinchando y sacando del juego a los mayores en usa asi que precaucion si se dedican a estos turbios negocios.

Aqui les dejo el LINK de la DEA para que vean de donde salio toda la informacion y como la procesaron.

Saludos cordiales.

Supuestamente, los habitantes de un pais, si cumplen con las leyes no pueden ser enjuiciados por hacer algo no penado.

Es como si alguien en argentina fuera arrestado y deportado a japon si arrojas basura a la via publica (calle)… (en japon en ilegal tirar basura a la calle y en argentina no, vale la aclaracion)

En thailandia no cometio ningun delito. De hecho alla esta todo legal. Salvo algun asunto con pago de impuestos que no pagaban.

Pero la extradicion es por romper las leyes de USA. Aunque tu estes en el pais X, enviar mercancia que es ilegal en USA es un delito. Y lso bichos van a buscarte.

El problema es que thailandia no debe permitir esa extradicion. Pues no ha causado la muerte de nadie. Ni mucho menos adiccion. Perdidas familiares, ni de casas. No es lo mismo que la droga y quieren satanizar a los esteroides igual.

Bueno todos sabemos que este duo dinamico vendia anabolizantes y mas para muchos lugares del mundo incluido USA por lo que la DEA dudo que vaya sobre datos falsos, ahora ciertamente en tailandia por ahora no es un delito comercializar con esteroides pero USA ejerce fuertes presiones a todo nivel (aunque desconosco bien esos asuntos legales).

En mexico si la DEA te libra boleta te extraditan sin preguntarle a nadie y al foso o a pagar fianza van dar.

Ahora falta ver cuales son los resultados por estas aprensiones yo creo que estan buscando grandes nombres para dejar claro que la ley se cumple y con lo facil que es salir de la carcel en USA con solo delatar a los compradores o los vendedores no sera muy tarde cuando veamos nuevos golpes incluso en usarios modestos de roids solo por armar un espectaculo policial televisado como es normal con los gringos.

Si por lo visto es un asunto mas mediatico que otra cosa. Porque estados unidos invierte tantos fondos en perseguir a un vendedor de esteroides que no causa muertos, por lo menos ninguno conocido, en lugar de usar esos fondos para dar hogar a quien no lo tienen, y tantas otras cosas mas importantes y necesarias.

Porque no luchar contra el trafico de seres humanos, o la explotacion de mujeres extranjeras en la prostitucion.

Sin duda todo es un gran circo mediatico, aprovecharse de la volatilidad del tema para que alguien obtenga un beneficio. Muchos en la DEA han obtenido ascensos por estas persecuciones, muchos politicos aseguran su puesto, muchos otros ganan dinero como contratistas del gobierno. Lo mismo que el negocio de la guerra.

Lo que me parece sucio es privar de la libertad a una persona que segun dice el articulo contribuia con obras beneficas y con mucho dinero, por importar unas substancias a USA que todavia no tienen ningun muerto encima, y sobre las cuales no se ha hecho ningun estudio serio al respecto. Es una soberana estupidez. Pero nunca falta una vieja menopausica sentada en su casa que se come el cuento de que ellos lo estan haciendo muy bien!!! sin saber cuanto manipulan sus mentes y obtienen sus votos.

Recuerda carnal los gringos tomateros estan en elecciones cualquier cosa es posible y mas si es publico y notorio.

Yo conosco algunos dealers que se han venido por aca para desaparecer en el caribe hasta que se calmen las cosas, a mis cutes mexicanos les han dado duro pero el negocio es muy grande para acabarlo asi de facil.

Este es uno de los mejores analisis que he conseguido en internet sobre este caso. Aqui se los dejo

http://www.isteroids.com/blog/category/steroids-and-anabolic-steroids/

It seems the curtain has finally settled on the guys from the old era of British Dragon and Redicat (paper anabolics). Of course, it was only a matter of time. Like anything in life, all good things come to an end, no matter what they are. In the case of British Dragon steroids, it seemed the last entrenched owners, Redicat and Ox kept their operation going way past it’s due date. In general, the US government tries to go after big dealers, wholesalers, since they are much easier to catch then retailers. Come now, try catching a guy sending steroids from Bosnia or Moldova, maybe a few hundred USD per order, how you going to pick him up? just too complex. Plus, it’s not worth the effort unless they are selling steroids in the USA, like a lab.

Now, in the case of, Redicat and British Dragon (no need to put their names since we’ll post them a little later via news story), they were busted based on a strong DEA sting. From the news reports, it was clear that Redicat and British Dragon sold their anabolic steroids via company they set up: Nutri Med. Co. Ltd. No, we DO NOT have insider information, this was just in the news story. More likely then not, as wholesalers they accepted large amounts of cash from distributors. It’s possible that a large intercepted package stateside, 200-500 vials (just a guess here) got caught up by customs, they set up the buyer (obviously a dealer) and the buyer told the DEA all the payment information and such for the steroids he got from British Dragon. That seems to be the most logical explanation from the news story.

In reality, operational safety was their real problem. We’ve heard from sources, including Anthony, that Redicat and British Dragon owners have met people in Thailand who they just built “trust” with over the internet. This was for possible business dealing. Would you think this is a safe thing to do? you can’t even get DVD bootleggers in China to meet you for a 5min lunch over some Mission Impossible DVD, how the hell do steroid king pins allow this?

Of course, we don’t know the whole story to a T, but we can deduct that the FEDs are going after steroids because the real “drug war” is a failure. More and more cocaine is entering the USA and heroin from Afghanistan has reached record levels, don’t forget the worst drug in the world, methamphetamine. Meth use is not down, and with the economic depression, it will only keep going up. So, instead of coming after the real problems, we’ll just come after the easy problems like anabolic steroids.

The truth, in the end of the day, of all these busts, is that steroids will go underground to the hardcore black market. What the US government (DEA) is doing, is pushing steroids into a more deep hole, where it will not recover. At some point, they will wipe out so much steroid stock, that the industry will be taken over by crime syndicates. We are talking about running steroids along with coke and other drugs, where it becomes a hardcore blackmarket - with no brakes! Right now, all steroids are provided by just regular bodybuilders and weightlifters, who are generally white collar workers before they get into steroids or bodybuilding. They don’t commit crimes, they don’t do recreational drugs, they are just ordinary citizens trying to look good via anabolics, and help out other bodybuilders. Now, once you drive all the legit white collar guys out, you’ll get the 50 gangster thugs with AK-47s and Mac-10s blasting at you when you’re trying to enter and bribing all government officials so they can disappear! Keep this in mind, the next steroid providers wont be the guys who help the local disabled weightlifting team and work with charities, it’ll be the corner gangsters with AK-47s because there is no other way. The industry is there, and once the legitimate channels are shut down, it’s only a matter of time until someone comes in to fill the void. There is no ways around it!

Como veo desde hace tiempo vienen siguiendo a los roids dealers lo que mas nos molesta a todos es que son roids dealers fuera de la jurisdiccion de los gringos :!: :!: :!: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:
Ojala el gobierno de tahilandia no dejen que los extraditen :!: :!: :!:
Ojala no entremos en una crisis de escases de roids 8) 8) 8)

Estaba viendo un par de cosillas por ahi , y de repente veo la noticia en:

Pobrecillos , como dicen por aqui , no se preocupan de la prostitucion , pornografia infantil , Trafico de Organos , . . Se preocupan De Traficar Con “Medicamentos” (que curan enfermedades) , No Lo Comparemos Con Drogas Como El Extasis , Cocaina , LSD , Que No Aportan Nada Saludable Al Organismo , Simplemente Una adiccion Y Favorecer La Destruccion De Una Persona, desde mi punto de vista pienso que si van a detener a esta gente , Que detengan antes a Philip Morris y a todas las grandes tabacaleras , a todos los estanqueros por vender tabaco y al gobierno por permitir que se venda , la mayor droga del mundo , que simplemente perjudica tu salud y no te aporta nada, basicamente ir buscando un cancer. No quiero decir que los esteroides sean buenos para el organismo , simplemente que utilizandolos con cabeza no tienen porque dar problemas y ayudan a mejorar tu estado fisico, cada uno es libre de introducir lo que quiera en su organismo. En fin , esperemos que no lo lleven a USA, Y Es Una pena por el gato , que a estado trabajando tanto tiempo , distribuyendo a tanta gente , Un Dealer Bien Reconocido en la red, en fin . . . .

Por Aqui Dejo un par de traducciones del google , para los foreros con dificultades con el ingles xD
