Ex-Philly cop pleads guilty in steroids case
Here we go again! Â Another cop guilty of selling steroids. Don
An ex-Philadelphia cop implicated by the feds in April in an illegal anabolic steroid distribution ring pleaded guilty in federal district court Tuesday. Joseph McIntyre, 36, of Atmore Road near Elnora in the far Northeast, remains free on bail. He is to be sentenced on Dec. 5. McIntyre pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute anabolic steroids and two counts of possession with intent to distribute anabolic steroids. The government’s plea memo said McIntyre, who was a 14-year veteran of the department and had worked most recently in the 26th District, bought steroids from fellow officer Keith Gidelson and resold them.
