Gary Matthews, Jr.An investigation in Orlando, FL, as a result of a large New York state grand jury investigation into Internet drug sales, has unearthed documents showing the illegal sale of steroids and other performance enhancing drugs (PEDs), some of which were going to professional sports athletes. As reported by the Albany Times-Union:

The Times Union has learned that investigators in the year-old case, which had remained quiet until now, uncovered evidence that testosterone and other performance-enhancing drugs may have been fraudulently prescribed over the Internet to current and former Major League Baseball players, National Football League players, college athletes, high school coaches, and a former Mr. Olympia champion and another top contender in the bodybuilding competition.

The customers include Los Angeles Angels centerfielder Gary Matthews Jr., according to sources with knowledge of the investigation.

As further reported:

Tuesday's raid of Signature Pharmacy, an Orlando business that did an estimated $36 million in business last year, could expose a long list of sports figures, celebrities and others who have turned to Internet pharmacies for illegal drugs such as steroids, authorities said.
