By Millard Baker source
Police arrested a high school volleyball coach for selling anabolic steroids after a three-month joint investigation by the Friendswood Police Department and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Timothy Todd Porter was arrested along with his two roommates during a raid of his home. Porter taught astronomy and physics in addition to coaching volleyball at Clear Springs High School in League City (Texas). He had been employed by the Clear Creek Independent School District for 22 years.
Porter became a high-profile target for police after investigators learned of his access to students as a teacher and coach at Clear Springs High School. “That is why (Porter) became a high-profile target for us, because of his occupation and access to students,” according to Lisa Price of the Friendswood Police Department. “We believe that there are students out there that he has sold to.”
Police recovered 98 grams of stanozolol and 35 grams of oxandrolone from Porter’s house. These popular oral anabolic steroids are more commonly known as Winstrol and Anavar among bodybuilders and athletes. He is suspected of obtaining the steroids from Healing Hands Compounding Pharmacy in Murphy, Texas.
The compounding pharmacy is the subject of an ongoing federal investigation according to local news site owned by the Houston Chronicle. The DEA raided the compounding pharmacy shortly after police found steroids in the search of Porter’s house.
Porter is also suspected of selling cocaine. He currently faces two counts of delivery of controlled substances (anabolic steroids and cocaine) in Harris County and one count of possession of controlled substances in Galveston County. He was being held in the Friendswood police jail in lieu of $10,000 bail.
