'Sting' rumored at local fitness center

Pittsfield, MA -- Federal officials today confirmed a U.S. Postal Inspection Service investigation into illegal anabolic steroids use in Pittsfield in which the focus appears to be on members of a downtown Pittsfield health club/fitness center who are alleged to have been receiving shipments via U.S. Mail of the controlled 'doping' substances used for bodybuilding and for enhanced sports performance.

Bernadette Lundbohm, spokeswoman at the Boston office of USPIS, acknowledged via email this afternoon the participation by Postal Inspection Service personnel in the Pittsfield investigation. "This is an ongoing investigation," Ms. Lundbohm wrote in response to questions.

An official with U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration contacted by telephone at DEA's Springfield office refused to comment.

A high official in the Pittsfield Police Department claimed this afternoon in a telephone call not to know anything of the USPIS investigation nor about rumors of a combined USPIS/DEA 'sting' last week at Berkshire Nautilus on Summer Street, which undercover operation is alleged to have tagged at least one PPD detective and one Massachusetts State Police trooper. <<<<<

are you talking about Pittsfield's officially unethical guilty repeat offender Mayor? suggesting that he demand drug test of the PPD, really? and lets just say that cops were ordered to be drug tested, what then, you think the Eagle would print the names of the offenders/cops daily so there would be no doubts about which cops are high and what their drug of choose is. I don't think so.

What happens when some defense attorneys start filing appeals because their clients were convicted from officers who are now under investigation for the same thing they are doing time for?

It is kind of sad but no way he is going to bust his boys. They are under the same umbrella cloak of immunity as the politico I would imagine.

Massachusetts state law stipulates mandatory minimum prison sentences for persons convicted of any kind of offense involving controlled substances or otherwise illegal drugs within one-thousand feet of a school or day-care center.

Berkshire Nautilus at 42 Summer Street is close by and easily within 1000 feet of the closest child care center, the YMCA at 292 North Street.
