According to the Sheriff’s department, Thomas bragged about selling the steroids to Major League Baseball players from the Washington Nationals and to athletes from the NHL’s Capitols. “You name the sport, and I’ve sold steroids to athletes who play it,” Thomas said according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office. Spokesmen and players from both teams deny the claims.
Thomas and his wife were found with thousands of anabolic pills and injectibles they allegedly purchased from foreign sources in Iran, Pakistan, Slovakia, Russia, China, Turkey, Spain, Mexico and Germany. The estimated value of the drugs was about $100,000. They were also in possession of several semi-automatic guns.
Thomas and his wife were both semi-professional bodybuilders. According to Thomas’ mother, he had been introduced to steroids by his father.
