MADRID (AP) -- Spanish police say they have arrested a former cyclist for allegedly trafficking in banned performance-enhancing substances and claim he has links to a major doping investigation.
Miguel Angel Adan, a spokesman for Spain's Anti-doping Agency, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that it was looking into the arrest of former cyclist Jose Luis Martinez for allegedly selling banned doping substances. Three others have been detained.
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 on Monday.
