An East Brunswick man was arrested on drug charges Friday after he accepted a shipment of steroids worth $500 while at work in Somerset County, authorities said.
Todd Geoghan, 26, of Cypress Lane, was charged with third-degree drug possession and a disorderly persons offense for possession of a prescription legend drug, said Acting Somerset County Prosecutor A. Peter DeMarco Jr. Geoghan was released on his own recognizance.
The arrest followed a month-long investigation by the prosecutor’s Organized Crime and Narcotics Task Force, Franklin police, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.
Task force members received information from ICE officials at Newark Liberty International Airport and the U.S. Customs Border Protection Unit that they intercepted a package containing two types of steroids — Oxandrogen and Trenbolone Acetate — and generic Levitra that was being shipped to Geoghan, DeMarco said. The drugs came from Cyprus, the prosecutor said.
Authorities arranged for a controlled delivery of the package, and the items were sent to Geoghan’s place of employment in Franklin Township. When he accepted and opened the steroids package, task force members arrested him, DeMarco said.
