Bad News for Axio Labs Brian Wainstein: Glenn England Pleads Guilty in Steroid Trafficking Conspiracy

April 17th, 2009 · No Comments

Glenn Donald England pleaded guilty to possession of steroids for the purpose of trafficking in Canadian Provincial Court on April 15, 2009. England admitted conspiring with GenXXL and Axio Labs founder Brian Wainstein to distribute significant quantities of steroid tablets and steroid injectable products in 2006. (”Edmonton cops bust steroid trafficker,” April 16).

According to agreed facts, England was busted after an eight-month undercover operation by city police and the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) that ended with an Oct. 10, 2006, raid at his west Edmonton apartment. [...]

There was also evidence found linking England to Irish steroid king Brian Wainstein, including itemized steroid orders on Wainstein’s website, names and addresses of customers, courier delivery receipts, phone records, money transfer receipts and computer text messages.

According to the agreed facts, between Feb. 7, 2006, and Oct. 30, 2006, England was in possession of 640,000 steroid tablets and 37.7 litres of steroid oil, valued at from $1.6 million to $2.3 million, that were sent by Wainstein.

The Edmonton Police cooperated with Irish police in a joint investigation after the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) intercepted a package from Wainstein containing anabolic steroids. Law enforcement monitored telephone conversations between England and Wainstein over the ensuing eight months. Canadian authorities arranged 17 controlled deliveries of steroid powders and steroid injectables shipped by Wainstein from Moldova, Hong Kong and China.

The packages contained 960,000 tablets and 62.8 litres of oil with a street value of between $2.5 and $3.5 million.

Edmonton Police Detective Ken Brander apparently replaced the steroid tablets with inert ingredients before delivering the packages to Glenn England. This may have, in part, contributed to the deteriorating reputation of GenXXL underground lab. England was apparently distributing fake GenXXL “sugar pills” to customers during most of 2006.

Edmonton police pursued at least one of Glenn England’s customers after he was arrested. Roger Tomasi, the owner of Bull Pen Gym in Edmonton, was given a 15-month conditional sentence with 3-months house arrest. Roger Tomasi pleaded guilty to two counts of steroid trafficking for selling 299 Anavar pills to undercover oficers at his gym in November 2006.

Roger Tomasi was originally indicted as a co-conspirator along with Brian Wainstein of GenXXL and Glenn England for the more serious crime of “conspiring to commit an indictable offence, relating to an alleged conspiracy to import and sell steroids.” Brian Wainstein faces a steroid conspiracy charges. Wainstein remains a fugitive with an outstanding warrant for his arrest in Canada.

Interestingly, although Irish police were apparently aware of Wainstein’s continued trafficking in anabolic steroids in 2006, Dublin Circuit Criminal Court Judge Martin Nolan sentenced Axio Labs / GenXXL founder Brian Wainstein to 4 months in prison (out of a two year suspended sentence) for the unlawful possession, sale, and distribution of anabolic steroids.

Canadian authorities have issued an arrest warrant for the South African national thought to be residing in Ireland. However, Ireland does NOT have an extradition treaty with Canada.

The Glenn England plea agreement is further bad news for Axio Labs founder Brian Wainstein. William Llewellyn, author of Anabolics 9th Edition and a soon-to-be-published expose on underground steroid labs, recently questioned Axio Labs quality control on the Body of Science website with the discovery of water in half of the vials that Axio submitted to BOS for lab testing (”AXIO examination,” March 26).

I think it is OK to release an early observation of AXIO, as I have concerns. AXIO felt strongly enough about their line to provide us samples. This is a very good sign. However, half of the samples AXIO provided us for testing were contaminated with water. You could see it immediately when you shake the vials up. if any of you at home have an AXIO vial, I invite you to do the same and report your observation.

This is just water and not necessarily “pollution”, mind you. I am NOT SAYING AXIO IS DIRTY OR DANGEROUS. But I am very anxious to see the results on this line. Water is not supposed to cloud up an oil-based solution, and shows there are problems. [...]

nandrolone decanoate Axio 275 mg/ml 10 ml GT921432241
testosterone cypionate Axio 200 mg/ml 10 ml RY930547472
testosterone enanthate Axio 250 mg/ml 10 ml BD120821700
testosterone propionate Axio 100 mg/ml 10 ml BR820504165
testosterone propionate Axio 50 mg/ml 10 ml XP532241123

This is what was supplied by AXIO… Water is in about half of them.

SBC has followed the back and forth dispute between William Llewellyn and Axio Labs on the SoreButtCheeks blog.

The quality control of Axio Labs is certainly a major concern but only one of several problems facing the underground lab. The greatest risk may ultimately come from law enforcement. Glenn England’s plea agreement highlights the significant attention law enforcement has devoted to the activities of one of the fugitive owners of Axio Labs and his colleagues/customers. Brian Wainstein has clearly been targeted as one of the major underground lab distributors of anabolic steroids worldwide.

Irish authorities convicted Wainstein of distributing steroids in 2003. Canadian authorities issued an arrest warrant for Wainstein on steroid distribution and conspiracy charges based on involvement with GenXXL in 2006. Wainstein has since been publicly linked to another underground lab Axio labs in 2008 and 2009. Wainstein is clearly on the steroid most wanted list. Law enforcement is most likely aggressively pursuing any and all identifiable co-conspirators of Brian Wainstein as well.
