hs-steroidsThe high school athletes of Palm Beach County now don’t have to wonder how it would be like to be in the Major Leagues or in the Olympics. The school board is highly considering having their athletes tested for use of alcohol and of illegal drugs. All that is needed is the board’s final approval for the tests (similar to those district employees receive) to be randomly used on the baseball and softball teams of six high schools.

Tests to detect anabolic steroid use will be added to the program later on and had already gotten the support of Elaine Taulé, the writer of the grant and also the president of to company who would do the tests.

Students who test positive for alcohol, steroids or any illegal drugs will not be removed from the team at first. They will not be able to play for 10 days, although they would be allowed to practice. They will only be booted out of their teams when tested positive for the second time. Coaches and other officials believe that the tests would teach the students discipline and hopefully, help them in guiding these students to the right path. This seems to be working since only one athlete was found positive for steroids among the 600 samples tested last year.

Abate was also charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute of oxandrolone (anavar), 42 counts of possession of prescription forms, and misdemeanor charges of possession of marijuana less than 20 grams and possession of paraphernalia. Abate was booked into the Charlotte County Jail on the drug and counterfeit-making equipment charges on a $52,100 bond.

The Sheriff’s office reported that Abate has been under surveillance for nearly five months before his arrest. His arrest also resulted to the seizure of more 3,000 pills, steroid drugs, counterfeit identification and nearly $500,000 in cash.

According to the police report, some of the vials and bottles found at the house had handwritten labels on them. There were also equipment found at the scene apparently used to fill up and seal steroid vials. Bags of raw steroid powder were also discovered during the search and seizure. Authorities also found several blank cards used for making counterfeit driver’s licenses and identification cards.

Abate also has six different licenses that contained his picture and three with different names. Also recovered from the house were blank doctor’s prescription pads for four different doctors in Florida and Connecticut. Further, among the documents seized was Abate’s release order from Federal Probation from prior prescription fraud.
