medline-steroidsA few years back, the Connecticut branch of the FBI Healthcare Fraud Unit started Operation Phony Pharm aimed to investigate web site and individuals who sell prescription anabolic steroids over the internet without having the license to do so. The operation managed to identify different UG Labs in the United States. These so-called laboratories import raw materials from other countries and use these to manufacture drugs that are otherwise difficult to obtain locally.

Among those identified is Medline Pharmaceuticals, which imported raw steroid powder from China and manufactured oral and injectable steroids. These were then sold over the internet. The three men behind this were Edwin Porter, Tyler Lunn, and Matthew Peltz.

All three had pleaded guilty, and Lunn and Porter had received their sentences last year. After two years of waiting, Peltz has now also received his due punishment.

From AZCentral.com:

A federal judge in Connecticut has sentenced a Chandler man to a year in prison for distributing anabolic steroids over the Internet.

Peltz was sentenced by a judge in New Haven on Thursday. His co-defendants were sentenced last year.

Edwin Porter, 42, of Chandler, and his business partners Matthew Peltz of Chandler, and Tyler Lunn of Phoenix, have pleaded guilty to one felony count of conspiring to distribute anabolic steroids over the Internet.

Porter was handed down a 22-month jail term, the US District Attorney’s announced Tuesday. He also received three years of probation for his involvement in planning to distribute anabolic steroids.

Porter pleaded guilty in June while his partners Lunn and Peltz pleaded guilty in August. Lunn was sentenced to five months in federal prison in September, and Peltz will be sentenced in January, according to a spokesman for the U.S. District Attorney’s Office in Connecticut.

According to the investigation carried out by the FBI, the three purchased more than one kilogram of raw steroid from China and homebrewed them at Porter’s home or Lunn’s apartment. They have planned to sell and distribute them through MySpace and another unnamed Internet site.
