Man appears in court for possession of illegal substances

An Instagram account called pharmacon_mpumalanga was used to advertise the substances.

MBOMBELA – Burke was released on R10 000 bail and will appear in court on January 31, 2018.

A large quantity of substances was seized, and has been sent to the forensic lab for testing.

The steroids found in his possession were being advertised on Instagram, on an account named “pharmacon_mpumalanga”, to assist in getting “jacked for summer”. On Friday the account was removed.

Pharma Test P100, Pharma Bold 300, DRO P100 and NAN D300 were some of the substances clients could purchase on “pharmacon_mpumalanga”.


A source close to the investigation stated that further charges could be added once they had ascertained how Burke obtained the steroids and if he distributed them.
