Ohio man surrenders $200,000 from illegal steroid business

WARREN, Ohio – One of two men charged in connection with an alleged Trumbull County steroid scheme has pleaded guilty. 22-year-old Josph Stivers of Bazetta Township pleaded guilty to 13 counts of a 17 count indictment. A search at Stivers home in March turned up steroids and almost $175,000 in cash. Under the plea agreement, Stivers will surrender $198,000 seized during the search.  The prosecutor is recommending a sentence of nine months to five years in prison when Stivers is sentenced later. A second suspect in the case, 46-year-old Randy McCale is still awaiting trial on six charges. McCale worked at Global Fitness off of Elm Road for three years at the front desk where he often sold memberships. He told authorities that Stivers paid him to provide him with a list of clients from the gym and make deliveries. http://www.wfmj.com/story/26397900/bazetta-man-surrenders-200000-from-illegal-steroid-business
