A former immigration agent based at the Peace Arch border crossing has been sentenced to two years of probation for importing steroids.

Sean Patrick Ganley, a former U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement special agent, pleaded guilty to the charges in June, according to an Associated Press article. Ganley admitted he purchased human growth hormone and steroids from China in 2008.

Customs inspectors discovered the drugs at JFK International Airport and connected them to Ganley through a wire transfer he had made.
