🕐 1 min read

DALLAS (AP) — A North Texas man faces up to 25 years in prison in a mailed steroids case involving a package from Singapore to San Francisco to Dallas.

Investigators say 40-year-old Nicholas Todd Freed of Dallas also faked being a law officer and possessed child pornography.

Freed pleaded guilty Tuesday to attempted possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance, possession of implements for use in the production of false documents and possession of obscene visual representations of the sexual abuse of children.

Freed was arrested in January at a Dallas postal service business. He tried to collect a package that investigators say contained anabolic steroids mailed from Singapore and tracked through San Francisco.
