Newtown Police Sergeant Who Arrested People For Marijuana Finally Sentenced For Selling Steroids





Steven Santucci, former sergeant of the Newtown, CT police department, has been caught at the head of an anabolic steroid distribution ring. He has been sentenced to 16 months in prison and 2 years of probation following his release.



 
Mr Santucci will also serve six months of home isolation a $5,000 fine during his supervised release and 120 hours of community service.


He pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute anabolic steroids and conspiracy to launder monetary instruments as reported by Rich Scinto with the Newtown Patch.
 

Mr Santucci was convicted of distributing imported steroid ingredients from China and the manufacture and sale of wholesale quantities of steroids - according to the U.S. Attorney District of Connecticut office.
 
Members of the distribution ring were also accused of selling prescription pills and cocaine.
 
Santucci wired more than $120,000 to foreign sellers and charged more than $300,000 on personal credit cards, including more than $100,000 for luxurious vacations.
 
Investigators obtained credit card statements that showed Santucci charged more than $310,000 to two cards from April 2011 to November 2014. 



Some of the charges included:
 
  • More than $80,000 on holidays, including $30,000 on an African safari.
  • More than $25,000 on Cruises.
  • More than $111,000 on lodging expenses, including $17,000 at Four Seasons resorts, $19,000 on Hyatt and Grand Hyatt and $7,000 at the Ritz Carlton.

Santucci earned around $80,000 per year as a police officer.
Former Newtown dispatcher Jason Chickos was previously sentenced to two years probation after pleading guilty last year.
    
The Edge Fitness Clubs in Fairfield, Conn., the Fairfield Wheeler Golf Course, and Griffin Hospital, were where the illegal activity was taking place. This is according to an affadavit. Chickos is described in the affidavit as a close associate of Santucci and a major distributor, purchasing thousands of dollars of steroids from Stantucci at a time.

With the ever-growing narrative of excessive force or officer involved shooting, it makes you wonder how prevalent the use of steroids and other illicit drugs are on the police force. Police unions have previously fought to keep officers from being drug tested. In the past, we have seen officers that are build more like Arnold Schwarzenegger and less like the average Joe. 

If the use of steroids is more prevalent than not, it would explain why police seem to have short fuses, and why the can not think clear-headedly under stressful situations. 

In closing, we believe that this case should be used as precedent to investigate all departments, and to call for nationwide drug testing off all officers of the law.
