Tyler man sentenced for importing steroids

TYLER - Stacey Godsey, a 45-year-old Tyler native, has been sentenced to 24 months in federal prison for conspiracy to import anabolic steroids in East Texas on Thursday after pleading guilty to the charges back in July of this year.

According to information presented in court, Godsey and Joseph Shay Burton, a 39-year-old Tyler man, bought anabolic steroids online from suppliers in China from 2014 to 2016.

After the steroids were shipped to the United States, Godsey and Burton converted them from powder to liquid dosage units in Godsey's kitchen and garage.

Once the dosages were converted from powder to liquid, the steroids were sold and distributed to users in Tyler and elsewhere.

Law enforcement officers searched residences belonging to Godsey and Burton back in 2016 and found over 60,000 dosage units of anabolic steriods at Godsey's residence and 6,000 at Burton's residence.

Burton is awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty in July of this year.
