A federal investigation into possession and sales of illegal anabolic steroids has led to the grand jury indictments of a former Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy and a Shreveport police officer.
Jonathan Colgin, a BPSO deputy until his resignation in July 2018 and Sgt. Brian Skinner of the Shreveport Police Department, on administrative leave since September, were named in the indictment.
An indictment is a formal document, filed at the conclusion of a grand jury investigation, accusing someone suspected of committing a crime.
That federal investigation may lead to even more legal action against local suspects, as the just unsealed indictment refers to “other persons known or unknown.”
The indictment reads, in part:
“Beginning on a date unknown, but beginning at least by or on January 1, 2016 and continuing through to or about May 22, 2018 in the Western District of Louisiana and elsewhere, the defendants, Brian Skinner, Jonathan Colgin, and other persons known or unknown to the Grand Jury, did knowingly and intentionally conspire and agree together to distribute and to possess with the intent to distribute anabolic steroids…”
Colgin and Skinner have been released on $25,000 bonds each.
Former District 5 Bossier Parish school board member Mike Mosura of Bossier City pleaded guilty for his role in an anabolic steroid distribution scheme that occurred during the same time frame, according to court records.
