Texas Cop Suspended for Organized Criminal Steroid Sales
February 27th, 2019



A Fort Worth police officer was indicted along with four other co-conspirators in an alleged steroid trafficking ring.


Jared Allyn Holt, a rookie officer with the Fort Worth Police Department in Texas, has been temporarily suspended after being linked to a local anabolic steroid trafficking ring. Holt’s suspension was effective beginning on February 22, 2019.

Fort Worth Police Chief Joel Fitzgerald suspended Holt upon learning of of the rookie officer’s legal predicament. Chief Fitzgerald notified the Fire Fighters’ and Police Officers’ Civil Service Commission in accordance with departmental policy.

Officer Holt allegedly worked with five others to help sell anabolic steroids.

Holt was indicted on first-degree felony charges involving alleged steroid sales by a Parker County grand jury on February 7, 2019. Holt was one of five suspects identified in the indictment.

Holt was joined in the indictment by his alleged co-conspirators Cody Johnson, Gregorio Lopez, Bradford Perry and James Wood. One unindicted co-conspirator was also identified as Scott Jackson.

Holt was arrested and booked into the Parker County Jail on February 11, 2019. He was released after posting a $25,000 bond later in the day.

Holt was charged with possessing with intent to deliver 400 grams or more of a Controlled Substance. Specifically, Holt was accused of distributing nandrolone, stanozolol, testosterone and other anabolic steroids or substances.

Parker County Assistant District Attorney Jeff Swain told local reporters that Holt could be sentenced to 15 to 99 years (or even life) in prison if he is convicted of the State felony charges.

Holt is being represented by local criminal defense and personal injury attorney Jim Lane of Fort Worth.

Holt has only been commissioned as a police officer since September 16, 2017. The future of Holt as a Fort Worth police officer is up in the air. His future employment ultimately depends on the outcome of the criminal case against him.

15 to 99 years? That's insane
-- Firsthand experience; it's no joke down there. They smoke your boots! If I was an American citizen, or Canadian (as I am) and wandered over the border unknowing they had an arrest warrant for me, I'd most likely be doing decades or life myself. My saving grace was the Extradition Treaty between our two countries. Before Canada granted me to them, the USA had to oblige to certain terms within the treaty. Without that protection I would've been a goner o_O

Kinda like how they fucked Clayton Rouche (leader of the UN -- 'United Nations' gang in Vancouver) and slammed him with 30 years!

-- Also, I find it curious that they use the word "Organized" in the title. It leads me to believe they're possibly going after him and his co-conspirators using the 'RICO Act' -- The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, commonly referred to as the RICO Act or simply RICO, is a United States federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization.

This could help explain the wild range in sentencing; 15 - 99 years. Conspiracy laws down south are also especially harsh and could also mete out long sentences. I'm against ratting but if any of these guys want to save themselves they'll have to start talking . . . and fast! First one to squeal gets the sweetheart deal.
