Scott Lofquist, 50, was named in a 20-count indictment along with his business partners Anthony Forgione, a 45-year-old ex-Boca Raton police officer, and Rodney Baltazar, a 47-year-old Delaware physician, for selling the banned supplements.
Lofquist was arrested in Kansas on March 30.
The indictment alleges Forigone sold steroids and human growth hormone through Lofquist’s company, Lifetime Wellness LLC.
Lifetime Wellness’ Web site offers a 913 number to call for a free consultation and proclaims:
“HGH and Testosterone Therapy returns what nature is slowly stealing away … “Supercharge Your Life And Your Libido!” Grab Back That Youthful, Natural Vitality”
The indictment (see link) catalogs 20 transactions allegedly made by Forgione between January 2006 and August 2009 (Forgione allegedly worked with Lofquist and Baltazar in the last five of those transactions between July 17 and August 7, 2009).
The Palm Beach Post reports that the alleged deals were made after Forgione pleaded guilty to steroid charges in New York in September 2008, admitting that he and a former Boca Raton doctor shipped steroids to rap stars and athletes, including professional wrestler Chris Benoit, who murdered his wife and son and then killed himself in 2007.
Lofquist was an All-American track and field athlete at the University of Arkansas.
