Agent sentenced for importing steroids

A former federal immigration agent was sentenced today to two years of probation for importing steroids.

Sean Patrick Ganley was a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement special agent based in Blaine. He pleaded guilty to the felony in June, acknowledging that he ordered human growth hormone and steroids from China in April 2008.

Customs inspectors working at JFK International Airport in New York discovered the drugs and tied them to wire transfers made by Ganley. Ganley’s lawyer said in court documents that his client bought the steroids for personal use and did not distribute them.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Spokane handled the prosecution to avoid any appearances of a conflict of interest involving the U.S. attorney’s office in Seattle.
