Boston cop pleads guilty to steroid charges

By Associated Press

BOSTON, Mass. — A suspended Boston police officer has pleaded guilty to federal charges of distributing anabolic steroids, committing perjury and obstructing justice in a federal grand jury probe of police corruption.

Investigators say 37-year-old Edgardo Rodriguez of Hyde Park was involved in distributing steroids on several occasions last year and in 2003.

He was also charged with making false statements to a grand jury when asked if he knew about other Boston Police officers involved in trafficking steroids.

U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan’s office says Rodriguez conspired with former Boston Police Officer Roberto Pulido to distribute and possess steroids.

Pulido pleaded guilty earlier this month to charges he helped protect truckloads of cocaine for undercover federal agents.

Rodriguez faces up to 5 years in prison on the drug and conspiracy charges and 10 years in prison on the obstruction of justice charge.

Sentencing is set for February 12.
