Michael Wozny pleaded guilty to possessing anabolic steroids with the intent to distribute. An investigation by the local sherriff’s department, the FDA Office of Criminal Investigation, the Department of Justice and the U.S. Postal Inspection service uncoveredapproximately one kilogram of steroid powder after a search warrant was executed at his residence in November 2007. Wozny allegedly sold various oral steroid pills in bottles containing fake prescription labels.

The Wozny indictment began when an individual was busted in Minnesota for selling anabolic steroids. The individual gave up his supplier in Minnesota. From there, authorities found the source of the steroids from phone records linking the Minnesota supplier to a phone number for Wozny.

John Zellers, Lawrence New Jersey police officer, provided Wozny with the fraudulent prescription labels used to disguise the illicit steroids sold by Wozny. Zellers aka “The Label Doktor” provided Wozny with fake labels for approximately 630 bottles of anabolic steroids according to authorities. Wozny was one of several buyers of fake prescription labels found by Zellers on internet bodybuilding forums.

Wozny is scheduled to be sentenced in March and faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
