Polk County Couple Faces Multiple Steroids ChargesA couple from Polk County was arrested Tuesday night for allegedly trading large-scale steroids. Richard Thomas and his wife Sandra are now facing 10 counts of possession of anabolic steroids with intention to sell and deliver; one count of possession of a firearm in commission of a felony; 10 counts importation of anabolic steroids into state of Florida; and one count of maintaining a residence for selling drugs.

According to Polk County officials, they were able to seize an estimated $200,000 in illegal steroids and various kinds of weapons. The officials considered the incident as the biggest seizure of steroids in Polk County history and one of the largest in the region.

Polk County officials and investigators are skeptical on the statements of Richard Thomas in which he claimed that he is the biggest steroid supplier in Central Florida. He also told investigators that he sold steroids to most professional athletes including Washington Capitals hockey team and Washington Nationals baseball team.
