CORBIN - Times-Tribune Staff Report
A Williamsburg man was arrested Thursday after the U.S. Department of Homeland Security alerted local police that a package of anabolic steroids from Thailand was being sent to him, according to Williamsburg Police Chief Wayne Bird.
Mehradad Aghamiri, also known as Mike Aggie, 22, was arrested after the package was delivered to his Jellico Creek Road home. He was charged with second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.
Bird said the pills have an estimated street value of $10,000. The package had been intercepted in Anchorage, Alaska, by Homeland Security agents.
Aghamiri was jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center.
Two Homeland Security agents and Williamsburg Police Detective Bobby Freeman and K-9 Officer Brandon Prewitt delivered the package and made the arrest.
The investigation continues by both agencies.
