Personal trainer tried to distribute 89,000 units of steroids
A Port Reading man was arrested today for conspiring to distribute more than 89,000 units of anabolic steroids in pill and liquid form, according to U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman. Special agents with the Department of Homeland Security arrested Richard Gray, 60, who works as a personal trainer. Gray was arrested as he attempted to pick up a package containing steroids, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. According to the Complaint: On April 23, agents of Customs and Border Protection conducted a routine border inspection of a package that was shipped from China to a package consignment store in Edison. The package was addressed to Custom Parts, in care of the consignment store. When customs inspected the package, agents found approximately 110 ampules that were individually labeled as different types of anabolic steroids, including “Mastabol, Dromastanolone Enanthate,” “Testosterone,” “Boldenone Undecylenate,” “Nandrolone Decanoate,” and “Testosterone Enanthate.” Store employees identified Gray as the person who was supposed to pick up the package and told investigators the store was holding another package for Gray, which was nearly identical to the first package and had been sent by the same shipper. Gray was arrested when he arrived at the store to pick up the second package. Gray then consented to have his home searched. Investigators found in the storage room in Gray’s basement a substantial amount of anabolic steroids, which were in both liquid and pill form. Some of the steroids were meticulously labeled and organized in boxes and individual trays, which were then placed on metal shelves. Others were stored in large, gallon-sized plastic bags. Gray is scheduled to make a first appearance in court later today. http://www.nj.com/middlesex/index.ssf/2013/05/us_attorney_personal_trainer_t.html
