Robert Kusmack, a former officer of Paw Paw Police Department, was caught possessing Fluoxymesterone (Halotestin) due to a Michigan steroid investigation. The targets of the investigation were personnel of law enforcement and an owner of a gym. As a result, police official received probation of 1 year and was enforced to pay certain fine. So, this police officer was fired in 2010.
Steroid investigations are led commonly in the following way: users of steroids are used to steroid dealers. But sometimes authorities apply another method to lead investigations.
United States Mail Inspection Service had discovered a package that contained 50 vials of HGH and was addressed to the steroid dealer Tom Radke. The West Michigan Enforcement Team (WMET) and the Kalamazoo Valley Enforcement Team (KVET) began to lead the investigation which resulted in detection of the steroid dealer.
But the authorities decided not to prosecute the dealer but to use him as an informant. It was made a decision to catch police officials that take steroids with the help of the distributor of steroids. An owner of a local gym was involved in this process as well.
Tom Radke acted as an undercover informant in this case. He sold Fluoxymesterone to Aaron DiPrima who was the owner of a local gym. The gym owner supplied the police officer Robert Kusmack with this preparation. Both the gym owner and the police officer were arrested.
Aaron DiPrima pleaded guilty in possession of an analogue. He was sentenced to one-year probation. He was also sentenced to 60 hours of community service. Thus, the steroid dealer was not sentenced to imprisonment. Three steroid users lost their jobs.
