A 37-year-old Bartlesville man was charged with drug offenses after a police search of his home reportedly turned up anabolic steroids he allegedly intended to distribute.
Curtis Ray Evans bonded out of jail on $20,000 bail after his appearance this week in Washington County District Court on a felony charge of possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute and misdemeanor charge of paraphernalia possession.
“It is still an open investigation,” Washington County Undersheriff Steve Johnson said Thursday. “The officers are still working it and said they anticipated more arrests may be possible as they continue to gather information.”
A confidential tip led to an investigation that culminated in a search warrant served Tuesday morning at a home in the 5400 Block of Harvard Avenue where Evans resides, Johnson said.
When he learned officers were at the home looking for anabolic steroids, Evans invited them into a bedroom where bottles of the illegal substance, syringes and packaging materials were found, a police affidavit stated.
There were labels indicating the vials contained various mixtures of testosterone, the affidavit stated.
