The chief executive officer and founder of Alpha Pharma Healthcare, Jacob Sporan Fielder was placed under arrest by police at Heathrow Airport in London on the 26th of March 2018. He was taken to the London Heathrow police station, where he was booked and charged with conspiring to export and import anabolic steroids, which are a controlled Class C drug. He was made to appear at Uxbridge Magistrates Court, where he faced charges of trafficking drugs in the United Kingdom on the 27th of March 2018.
Prior to his arrest, a four-year investigation was undertaken by the United Kingdom National Crime agency, which was originally triggered when more than 630 kilos of performance-enhancing drugs and anabolic steroids were seized by border Force agents throughout 2014. The investigation, which is ongoing, seized approximately £30 million pounds of controlled Class C substances, which were on their way to Belfast, in Ireland. The seizure in the United Kingdom is not the first time of discovering quantities of steroids for Alpha Pharma on a large scale. In fact, Customs agents in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and various other countries have also discovered anabolic steroids and performance-enhancing drugs on a smaller scale.
Jacob Sporan Fielder has been well known to law enforcement agents and officers over a period of several years. His involvement with the Import and Export of anabolic steroids and performance-enhancing drugs has been public knowledge also for more than 5 years, and he has done nothing to conceal his involvement. He is noted as stating that he is a pharmaceutical executive and entrepreneur via several social media outlets such as YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook. He has also always used his correct legal name with all dealings of alpha pharma.
In November of 2012, Alpha Pharma and Sporan Fielder where the subject of an expose, which was published in Politiken, a Danish newspaper, where his involvement in the black market throughout Europe was investigated. The investigation led to research into the origins of the company and discovered Sporan Fielder to be the registrant of the company, which was founded in Denmark in 2005. The company describes itself as being involved in the wholesale trade of medical products and pharmaceuticals. Its sister company, Alpha Pharma Healthcare was founded several months later in India.
Over the years, Jacob Sporan Fielder has witnessed one of his partners, and co-founders go to prison over their part in steroid trafficking. A bodybuilder from Denmark, Sten Lorentzon was eventually eliminated from the company after his arrest for possession of more than 120,000 ampules and steroid pills that bore the alpha Pharma name in 2010, all of these were ready to be sold on to customers around the world. The companies Danish registration was dissolved on the 14th of January 2008, after which it moved to a well known tax Haven and extremely private place to do business, the Seychelles. However, its Indian registration remains active and is still current to date.
Despite everything that was already known about his involvement in the sister company Alpha Pharma Healthcare, he still felt comfortable to travel between his home in India and his home in Denmark several times each year. It is still not known as to why he was travelling through the United Kingdom, although it is likely that he was making a transfer at the airport. Regardless of this, it placed him within Easy reach of the United Kingdom’s law enforcement agents and authorities. Ultimately, his vision of being untouchable clearly became his downfall and his time has now run out.
