    [SIZE=-1]A 30-year-old fitness studio owner has been charged with drug possession this week after city police and federal agents allegedly found syringes and suspected steroids inside a black bag he was carrying, according to police.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=-1]Mark Eugene Miller, owner of Mark Miller Fitness in the 900 block of South Salisbury Boulevard, was placing the bag in his truck when Salisbury Police and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents seized the bag, according to charging documents.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=-1]ICE, an investigative agency within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security that enforces immigration and customs laws, alerted city police to two alleged packages, one from Greece and one from Romania, Miller was expecting. His arrest came at the end of a weeklong investigation by city and federal investigators, according to Salisbury police.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=-1]"Customs gets involved in anything illegal from overseas," said Lt. Rob Kemp, a spokesman for the Salisbury Police Department.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=-1]Police said they found more than 300 prescription steroids, including Anapolon, Oxandrolone and Stanoplex, according to court documents. Investigators also found several syringes inside the bag.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=-1]Following the search, police took Miller into custody and charged him with multiple counts of possessing a controlled dangerous substance. The fitness center owner was released on his own recognizance the same day, according to court records.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=-1]Miller did not return phone calls for comment from The Daily Times on Friday.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=-1]Possession of a controlled dangerous substance is a misdemeanor in Maryland and carries a maximum penalty of four years in prison.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=-1]A Wicomico County District Court hearing for Miller has been scheduled for early April. However, the case could be transferred to Circuit Court.[/SIZE]
