Two arrested in illegal steroid case

One suspect is a Jeffersonville Police Department officer

JEFFERSONVILLE — A Jeffersonville Police Department officer and a former corrections officer were arrested Monday on suspicion of attempting to purchase illegal steroids.

The arrests stemmed from an Indiana State Police-led investigation that began in June involving the alleged distribution and possession of illegal steroids.

According to an ISP-issued press release, information was obtained by ISP detectives that Anthony G. Mills Jr., 27, Sellersburg, and Robert C. Wilcoxson, 24, Charlestown, were allegedly trying to possess illegal steroids.

A reverse-sting was conducted in which ISP detectives made deals to sell what the two arrestees thought were illegal steroids, though the actual substance sold was counterfeit, according to the release.

Mills was driving his Jeffersonville Police Department-issued car when he arrived to make a purchase.

Wilcoxson is a former employee of the Clark County Sheriff’s Department, where he worked as a correctional officer. Wilcoxson was fired three weeks ago as a result of the ISP investigation, said Clark County Sheriff Danny Rodden. Rodden said no other employees of his department have been disciplined as a result of the investigation.

The arrests came after warrants were issued by Clark County Circuit Court earlier Monday.

Mills has been charged with attempted possession of a controlled substance, a class C felony. Wilcoxson was charged with attempting to deal in a controlled substance, a class A felony; attempted possession of a controlled substance, a class C felony; and dealing in a look-alike substance, a class C felony. Online court records did not show the charges had been filed at press time.
