Personal trainer jailed for selling steroids
A personal trainer from Palo Alto is facing multiple charges that he sold prescription drugs and narcotics to buyers across the United States. On Thursday, the Menlo Park Police Department’s narcotics enforcement team, along with Homeland Security and FBI agents, served two search warrants at Perry Mosdromos’ home in Palo Alto and office in Menlo Park. A search of his residence revealed tens of thousands of prescription drugs, including Vicodin, Percocet and Valium, according to Menlo Park police Sgt. Eric Cowans. Authorities also discovered thousands of anabolic steroids and several illegal narcotics such as MDMA. Altogether, Cowans estimated the drugs’ street value at more than $250,000. The investigation into Mosdromos, 46, began when Homeland Security agents intercepted a package containing 499 grams of anabolic steroids and 4,374 Xanax pills before it arrived at a post office box in Menlo Park, according to Cowans. The post office box was then connected with Mosdromos. Mosdromos, who works as an independent contractor at Peak Performance in Menlo Park, allegedly ordered the drugs from other countries and then repackaged, sold and shipped them to people around the country. Police arrested and booked him into San Mateo County jail on Thursday. He has since been released on $25,000 bail and is scheduled to be arraigned July 10, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said. http://www.mercurynews.com/peninsula/ci_20818448/palo-alto-man-accused-selling-prescription-drugs-narcotics
