A federal grand jury has indicted 32-year-old George Sambuca, of Henderson, on charges related to a scheme to defraud customers by mislabeling drugs and distributing anabolic steroids. 

The indictment was returned on Nov. 15, 2017, and unsealed upon the arrest of the Sambuca, who is also known as Jack Yates and Steven Thompson.
According to the four-count indictment, Sambuca distributed the anabolic steroids, testosterone, nandrolone, stanozolol, oxandrolone, and Oxymetholone, all of which are Schedule III controlled substances. Sambuca mislabeled these drugs as “TEST SUSTANON 350MG,” “DBOL 5g” and “SUSTANON 350MG/ML ... 100cc” and sent them from his residence in Nevada to Maryland on two separate occasions, conducting his business under the name of “Dynasty Labs.”
Sambuca faces a maximum of 10 years imprisonment for each of the two counts of distribution of anabolic steroids and a maximum of 3 years imprisonment for each of the two counts of introduction of misbranded drugs into interstate commerce with intent to defraud and mislead.  

Sambuca had an initial appearance on Jan. 19, in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, where he was arrested and ordered detained. An initial appearance has not yet been scheduled in Greenbelt, Maryland.
