According to the New Hampshire Union Leader, a grand jury returned with the charges for Mark Ferrara after meeting earlier this month.
A Wilmington man who was arrested in June when he was stopped in New Hampshire with large amounts of steroids will face felony charges, according to the New Hampshire Union Leader.
According to the newspaper, Mark Ferrara of Hobson Street in Wilmington, faces 13 counts of possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute. The Union Leader reports that court records indicate each of the charges carry a potential prison term of three-and-a-half to seven years and a $100,000 fine.
Police said that on June 4, Ferrara told undercover agents that he possessed Human Growth Hormone and anabloic steroids. Soon after, officers pulled Ferrara over on Route 125 in Brentwood, N.H.
During a search of the vehicle, police said they found 8,000 steroids in pill form, 1,090 milliliters of liquid steroids, hypodermic needles, and about $1,100 in cash.
Wilmington Police then conducted a search of Ferrara’s home and discovered $47,000 in cash, 360 milliliters of HGH and steroids, and about 200 hypodermic needles, police said.
Ferrara is being held on $50,000 bail at the Rockingham County jail, the Union Leader reported.
