Prosecutors Charge Three With Steroid Trafficking

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Federal authorities charged three Memphis men, including a city firefighter, with illegal trafficking in anabolic steroids.

The charges stem from an investigation that led to similar accusations last week against Sergeant Brady Valentine, a Memphis police officer who was named Tennessee Narcotics Officer of the Year for 2006.

The new charges accuse Memphis firefighter Steven Craig of selling steroids to police informants on two occasions.

Aaron Duke is charged with selling steroids and agreeing to help a police informant transport vehicles which supposedly contained marijuana and methamphetamine.

Daniel W. Manus is charged with using a telephone to further a conspiracy to sell steroids.

Offenses covered by the charges are punishable by up to five years in prison and $250,000 in fines.
