NH man admits to role in $2.25M internet steroids distribution ring

The Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A former Missouri man has pleaded guilty in a $2.25 million conspiracy to make anabolic steroids and sell them online.

The U.S. attorney's office says 28-year-old Michael Peters, of Pelham, New Hampshire, also pleaded guilty Thursday to a conspiracy to commit money laundering.

He admitted through his plea that he and other conspirators operated an online company that sold steroids to customers throughout the U.S. They also sent about $200,000 in drug proceeds to China to purchase additional raw materials to manufacture steroids.

Peters' role included collecting money from customers, purchasing supplies, assisting in the steroid manufacturing process, handling online orders and shipping steroids to customers.

He faces a sentence of up to 30 years in prison without parole. No sentencing date has been set.
