HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A former State Judicial Marshal from Ansonia has admitted to purchasing and distributing steroids and other prescription pills.

On Wednesday, Connecticut’s district attorney announced that 34 year-old Jeffrey Gentile pleaded guilty to one count of using a telephone to facilitate the distribution of amphetamine, a Schedule II controlled substance.

Court documents and statements made Wednesday in court revealed that a former Newtown Police sergeant, Steven Santucci, and others were receiving shipments of steroid ingredients from China and manufacturing and distributing wholesale quantities of steroids.

Certain members of the conspiracy also distributed prescription pills, including oxycodone, as well as cocaine.

The investigation revealed that Alex Kenyhercz, of Ansonia, purchased anabolic steroids from Santucci and distributed them to others.  Kenyhercz also illegally distributed prescription medication, including Roxicodone, Oxycodone, Suboxone and Opana.

In pleading guilty, Gentile admitted that he obtained steroids from Kenyhercz by paying him, in part, with Adderall, which is an amphetamine.
