Social media has tripped up a Port St. Lucie man who is accused of selling steroids without a license.
The St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office arrested Sean Patrick Nobel, 24, after serving a search warrant at his home in the 900 block of SE Bayfront Avenue.
The sheriff's office said Nobel was identified through social media as selling the steroids.
“Aside from the simple fact that selling controlled substances such as these steroids without a license is a felony, the suspect was advising buyers on how to mix them and when and how to take them,” Sheriff Ken J. Mascara said in a statement.
The sheriff's office said more than 50 vials and packages of steroids were located in the bedroom and walk-in closet of Nobel’s Port St. Lucie home.
“With society fixated on how to look like magazine cover models, seeking these types of controlled substances without the oversight of a licensed physician can prove deadly,” Mascara said.
Deputies have charged Nobel with possession of anabolic steroids, possession of controlled substance without a prescription, sale, manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to sell, manufacture, or deliver anabolic steroids, dispensing pharmaceuticals without a license and unlawful use of a two-way communications device.
Bond was set at $35,000 after he was booked into the St. Lucie County Jail.
