Mr Universe title winner guilty of steroid supply
A FORMER Mr Universe champion and a bodybuilder have been convicted of illegally supplying steroids.
Two-times Mr Universe Shaun Davies, of St Albans Close, Long Eaton, joined forces with Ian Homer, who had travelled to Thailand to buy the class C drugs.
James House, prosecuting, told Leicester Crown Court that the pair started to supply steroids, including nandrolone and testosterone, to other bodybuilders after becoming training partners at a gym.
Mr House said the two-man operation, which brought in about £16,500, was uncovered after police raided a house in West End, Long Whatton, near Loughborough, where Homer lived.

The officers found a stun gun and £9,000 cash. Davies was arrested later.
Homer, 57, and Davies, 56, each pleaded guilty to four counts of being concerned in the supply of class C drugs between October 2008 and January 2010.
Homer also admitted being in possession of the stun gun – a prohibited weapon.
Homer was given a year-long prison sentence, suspended for two years. He was ordered to carry out 300 hours of unpaid work and to pay £1,000 costs.
Davies was given a 22-week jail sentence, suspended for two years. He was ordered to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work and to pay £700 costs.
Andrew Easteal, for Davies, said his client stopped bodybuilding three years ago and had become the full-time parent for his 12-year-old daughter.
Simon Eckersley, for Homer, said his client had begun to supply the drugs to fellow bodybuilders through associates of Davies.
