Easton Police Commissioner Charged in Federal Steroid and Prescription Narcotic Distribution Investigation

JUL 14 (EASTON, Conn.) – Michael J. Ferguson Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration for New England and Deirdre M. Daly, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that Raymond J. Martin, 48, of Easton, was arrested today in connection with a federal steroid and prescription narcotic distribution investigation. Martin, who is a member of the Easton Police Commission, appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Sarah A. L. Merriam in New Haven and was released on bond.

This matter stems from a long term investigation led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Drug Enforcement Administration and Homeland Security Investigations into individuals who were receiving shipments of steroid ingredients from China and manufacturing and distributing wholesale quantities of steroids.  The investigation also revealed that certain individuals were distributing prescription pills, including oxycodone.   As alleged in the criminal complaint, a court-authorized wiretap intercepted Martin engaging in text communications with other members of the conspiracy discussing the distribution of anabolic steroids and oxycodone.  The complaint charges Martin with conspiracy to possess oxycodone with intent to distribute, an offense that carries a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years. Eleven other individuals have been charged as a result of the investigation.                During the course of the investigation, law enforcement officers seized hundreds of vials of steroids, approximately 600 grams of raw testosterone powder, more than 1,000 oxycodone pills, approximately 350 grams of powder cocaine and four long guns. This matter is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Drug Enforcement Administration and Homeland Security Investigations, with the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Service.

U.S. Attorney Daly stressed that a federal complaint is not evidence of guilt.  Charges are only allegations and each defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
