Bethel man charged with selling steroids
DANBURY, Conn. -- Federal authorities say they have arrested a Bethel man who allegedly distributed steroids to high school student-athletes and others in the Danbury area.
Prosecutors said Tuesday that 46-year-old Mark Mansa was one of four people arrested in connection with the distribution of drugs.
The three other men face charges in connection with the distribution of marijuana.
Prosecutors say Mansa sold about 70 200-milliliter bottles of steroids every month at a price of up to $90 each. He is charged with conspiring to distribute steroids from January 2004 to February 2011. Investigators say he sold anabolic steroids to a cooperating witness on four occasions in 2010.
His lawyer tells The News Times of Danbury that he intends to plead not guilty at his arraignment scheduled for March 23 in Bridgeport.
