EASTON, Conn. — A former member of the Easton Police Commission will spend three years on federal probation and pay a $10,000 fine for his role in distributing illegal steroids.
Raymond J. Martin, 50 was sentenced Wednesday by U.S. Magistrate Judge Holly B. Fitzsimmons in Bridgeport.
Martin was busted when he was picked up on a court-authorized wiretap ordering anabolic steroids and offering to sell oxycodone pills as part of a federal investigation led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Drug Enforcement Administration and Homeland Security Investigations.
Steven Santucci, a former Newtown Police sergeant, and others were receiving shipments of steroid ingredients from China and manufacturing and distributing wholesale quantities of steroids. Certain members of the conspiracy also distributed prescription pills, including oxycodone, as well as cocaine.
Martin was serving as a police commissioner in his hometown of Easton at the time of his arrest on July 14, 2015.
On March 30, 2017, he pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful possession of a controlled substance.
Santucci pleaded guilty and, on Aug. 25, 2016, was sentenced to 16 months in prison, six months of home confinement, 120 hours of community service and a $5,000 fine.
