Man’s body led Swedish police to suspect steroid use, despite court ruling that muscles alone are not grounds for arrest

Police in Malmö arrested a man after approaching him because his muscular physique led them to suspect steroid use.

They interviewed the man in the street, but their suspicions grew when he was reluctant to answer their questions.

After they obtained a warrant to search his home, they discovered over 20,000 pills and vials of performance enhancing drugs, including steroids.

He told police that the drugs were for personal use and denied that he was a dealer, but "150,000 kronor ($21,000) in cash and packaging materials in the apartment led the court to believe otherwise", The Swedish news site Local News reports.

Text messages about drug deals strengthened the case against him and he was sentenced to 21 months in jail. A woman who shared his apartment denied all knowledge of the drugs but was also found guilty and sentenced to a year and a half in prison.

Earlier this year, after a similar incident, the Swedish Justice Ombudsman warned police that "big muscles are not adequate grounds for arrest".

Oh good ... not yet anyway, right? They sure don’t want more capable Magnus Samuelsson’s walking around the streets of Sweden. Taking this story into account together with all the other aspects we’ve covered about Swedish society, the message is clear: capable strong men = the enemy. Do you have the right to your own body anymore? Why does the state limit your capability of both exploring and improving your own body and consciousness (with other more "mental" compounds)?
