A Santa Cruz man has been charged with importing steroids be bought online and selling them to recovering addicts and people at a local gym.
James Edward Moore Jr. pleaded guilty to two felony charges on
Thursday in federal court in San Jose.
The 31-year-old man is accused of buying steroids and human growth hormone over the Internet from China and Moldova last year.
Moore was arrested after agents discovered an international express mail package sent to a Santa Cruz halfway house he managed and lived in.
Moore allegedly told agents he was using the drugs for health problems and selling them to people at a local Gold's Gym.
