A southern Indiana couple was arrested Tuesday, Aug. 12, after what law officials say could be the state’s largest anabolic steroid bust, WISH-TV reports.

Rushville law enforcement, the Drug Enforcement Administration and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service worked together to seize materials from an active steroid lab at a home east of Rushville , according to JConline.

Holly Starkey, 34, and her husband David E. Starkey, 39, were each charged with manufacturing a controlled substance, corrupt business influence, possible hypodermic syringe and maintaining a common nuisance, WISH-TV reports.

The specifics of the operation are unclear, but police say the couple was making use of the United States Postal Service in some capacity, FOX 59 reports.

More arrests and charges are expected, JConline reports.
