Bradenton, Florida - Two former Manatee County deputies were arrested today after being charged with steroid possession.
Thomas Frank was caught on surveillance purchasing $80 worth of steroids during a July 31st sting operation.
The 45 year-old worked a sergeant in the patrol division.
In a separate undercover operation, detectives also say they witnessed Chris Tucker buying $300 worth of steroids.
Tucker worked as deputy in the Child Protective Investigations Division. Both recently resigned from the department after the allegations came to light.
A third deputy remains under investigation and criminal charges are expected.
This is an ongoing investigation in conjunction with the U.S. Attorney's Office, the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
