CHICAGO (AP) - A suburban Chicago man who pleaded guilty to making and distributing illegal steroids to dozens of customers has been sentenced to two years in federal prison.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Chicago says in a news release that 25-year-old Christopher C. Hickson took bulk powders he’d imported from China to manufacture anabolic steroid pills in a makeshift laboratory in his Aurora home. He then distributed them to more than 100 customers in the United States and Canada.

The release says federal agents intercepted a parcel from China that was addressed to Hickson’s home and determined it contained a steroid called Stanozolol. A search of his home in November 2014 revealed steroid power, more than 1,000 vials filled with liquid steroids and hundreds of steroid pills and capsules.
