HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — The Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) arrested a state trooper on charges related to the possession of illegal controlled substances.
According to a press release, Trooper Joseph W. Czachorowski was arrested after a U.S postal inspector intercepted a piece of mail addressed to him, and obtained a federal search warrant.
Upon executing the warrant, the inspector and another trooper reported discovering 30 Oxymetholone pills and two vials of Trenbolone acetate. Both of these substances are steroids and Schedule III controlled substances.
Schedule III controlled substances are defined as drugs with a moderate to low potential for physical and psychological dependence, according to the United States Drug Enforcement Administration.
Czachorowski has been charged with misdemeanor counts of possessing a controlled substance, drug paraphernalia, a small amount of marijuana, and instruments of crime.
