Personal trainer released on bail after drug bust
He didn't have a "get out of jail free" card, but Perry Mosdromos is out of custody anyway. The 46-year-old personal trainer recently arrested in a $250,000 drug bust was released after posting $25,000 bail, according to the district attorney's office.
San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said his office will handle the case related to drugs found in Menlo Park. The arraignment is scheduled for July 10.
The investigation started after Homeland Security agents intercepted a package containing 499 grams of anabolic steroids and 4,374 Xanax pills that were to be delivered to a UPS box in Menlo Park. The investigation revealed that the box allegedly belonged to Mr. Mosdromos, police said.
On June 8 agents searched One-2-One Fitness in Menlo Park and his Palo Alto residence on Loma Verde Avenue, and took Mr. Mosdromos into custody.
Police said a search of his residence turned up tens of thousands of prescription drugs such as Vicodin, Percocet, and Valium, along with thousands of anabolic steroids and illegal narcotics such as MDMA. The estimated street value of the seizure is more than $250,000, police said.
Investigators said Mr. Mosdromos ordered the drugs from other countries, repackaged them and shipped them all over the United States.
He was booked into San Mateo County jail on multiple counts of illegal drug sales.
