Spanish police arrest ex-cyclist in doping network
Spanish police say they have arrested a former cyclist for allegedly trafficking in banned performance-enhancing substances with links to a major doping investigation days before it goes to court.
Miguel Angel Adan, a spokesman for Spain's Anti-doping Agency, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that it was studying the arrest of former cyclist Jose Luis Martinez for allegedly selling banned doping substances along with three other detainees.
Police say they found more than 300 000 doses of banned substances in a secret laboratory in the southeastern town of Molina de Segura.
In 2006, the major police investigation Operation Puerto linked Martinez to doctor Eufemiano Fuentes, one of six defendants set to stand trial from Monday.
