Four Defendants Charged in Conspiracy to Distribute Testosterone and Human Growth Hormones to Underage High School and Professional Athletes
A.D. Wright, Acting Special Agent in Charge, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Miami Field Division, and Wifredo A. Ferrer, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, announce the filing of a superseding indictment charging Yuri Sucart, 52, of Miami, FL, Juan Carlos Nuñez, 48, of Fort Lauderdale, FL, Lazaro Daniel Collazo, a/k/a “Lazer,” “Laser,” 50, of Hialeah, FL, and Paulo Berejuk, a/k/a “Pablo Berejuk,” “Paolo Berejuk,” 50, of Cutler Bay, with conspiring to distribute testosterone and human growth hormone to underage high school and professional athletes. The charges stem from a DEA investigation, which focused on the illegal distribution of testosterone by the charged defendants in Miami-Dade County, and elsewhere. In August 2014, seven defendants, including Sucart, Nuñez, and Collazo, were charged with conspiracy to distribute testosterone. Defendants Anthony Publio Bosch, Carlos Javier Acevedo, Jorge Augustine Velazquez, and Christopher Benjamin Engroba have entered guilty pleas and are pending sentencing in connection with this conspiracy.
