Pa. officer is charged with selling steroids

October 30, 2005|By

SOUTH FORK, Pa. - A part-time police officer bought illegal steroids over the Internet and then sold them to an undercover informant, authorities said.

Brock Hendrickson, 28, of South Fork, was suspended from the Summerhill Township police force, where he's worked since 1998, after his arrest on steroid dealing charges Thursday.

Hendrickson's phone number is unlisted; it wasn't immediately clear if he has an attorney.

Officials with the Cambria County's Drug Task Force intercepted a package of steroids sent to a South Fork address earlier this year, then traced the drugs to Hendrickson before setting up the deal with the undercover informant, authorities said. Police said Hendrickson got the drugs from Serbia and that more than 800 steroid pills were seized when Hendrickson was arrested.

Officials in the largely rural county about 60 miles east of Pittsburgh said this was the first incident involving steroids on a large scale they recall investigating.

"This is certainly a first for me, and we think this may be the first of this magnitude ever in the county," said Detective Kevin Price, a task force supervisor.
