Southbridge Couple Charged with Manufacturing and Distributing Anabolic Steroids
BOSTON –Two Southbridge residents were arrested today for manufacturing and distributing anabolic steroids out of their apartment which doubled as a small laboratory.
Kurt Moisan, 36, and Bobbijo Clark, 42, were each charged with distribution of anabolic steroids, possession with the intent to distribute anabolic steroids, and conspiracy to distribute anabolic steroids. Moisan was additionally charged with manufacturing anabolic steroids. Both were arrested at their Southbridge residence this afternoon.
According to court documents, on three occasions from December 2014 to January 2015, an undercover federal agent purchased anabolic steroids from a website maintained by Moisan and Clark. In February 2105, law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at Moisan and Clark’s Southbridge residence and discovered that they were operating a small laboratory out of their second floor apartment. Agents seized thousands of grams of suspected powdered steroids and hundreds of vials containing suspected liquid steroids. Moisan and Clark admitted to importing raw steroids from China, cooking them into injectable steroid compounds in their apartment, and distributing the steroid compounds through online sales throughout the United States.
The charging statutes provide a sentence of no greater than 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release, and a fine of $250,000. Actual sentences for federal crimes are typically less than the maximum penalties. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.
United States Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz; Michael J. Ferguson, Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration, Boston Field Division; and Southbridge Police Chief Daniel Charette, made the announcement today. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Greg A. Friedholm of Ortiz’s Worcester Branch Office.
The details contained in the charging documents are allegations. The defendants are presumed to be innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
