    MONTGOMERY - The state has permanently revoked the medical license of a township doctor who pleaded guilty in federal court in April to distributing anabolic steroids and possessing marijuana with intent to distribute.

    Kevin Custis, 51, of the Belle Mead section, who had offices in Asbury Park and Brooklyn, sentence is awaiting sentencing on Nov. 15. Custis is also facing charges in Brooklyn.

    The charges against him stemmed from a multi-agency investigation conducted by the Division of Consumer Affairs’ Enforcement Bureau, the federal Drug Enforcement Agency (“DEA”) and others.

    Custis was convicted of writing and delivering numerous prescriptions for various types of anabolic steroids to two patients, who were actually undercover investigators, in 2016 and 2017.

    Custis admitted that he knew these prescriptions were not for the treatment of any actual medical condition, but were solely for muscle enhancement, beauty, and muscle building and fitness competitions, a use expressly forbidden by a state Board of Medical Examiner rule.

    When agents and investigators from the Drug Enforcement Agency searched his home on June 14, 2017, they found more than four kilograms of marijuana and more than 150 grams of tetrahydrocannobinal oil.

    Custis admitted that he intended to distribute these substances and that he had no authority under any federal or state law or regulation to do so.

    Custis also admitted that he prepared marijuana products for patients in his home kitchen.

    Custis faces up to 10 years in federal prison and a $500,000 fine for the distributing anabolic steroids charge and up to five years in prison and a $250,000 for the possessing marijuana with intent to distribute charge.
