U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents in Louisville seized an illegal shipment of testosterone and anabolic steroids worth about $69,000.
The shipment, discovered June 10, consisted of four boxes weighing a total of about 167 pounds, CBP said. Each box contained smaller boxes with address labels for various destinations throughout the U.S.
The boxes contained vials of liquid and bags of powders and gels. CBP tested all 17 products and determined that they were either testosterone or steroids.
The shipment had come from Hong Kong and was destined for an address in Flushing, New York – a neighborhood within the borough of Queens.
