Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

A former Edmond police officer was indicted Tuesday and is accused of serving as the head of a drug trafficking organization, according to federal court documents.

Christopher Thomas Caplinger was indicted in the Western District of Oklahoma on counts of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute anabolic steroids, attempted distribution of anabolic steroids, distribution of anabolic steroids, maintaining a drug-involved premises, money laundering conspiracy, international money laundering and aiding and abetting, money spending statute and aiding and abetting, and criminal forfeiture.

Also indicted were Donald Ray Vincent, Jr., Deborah Ann Crawford and Michael Brandon Schott.

From Feb. 11, 2014 to Nov. 29, 2017, Caplinger served as head of a drug trafficking organization that worked out Boss Auto Sales, LLC, 8201 N Classen Boulevard, according to the indictment. 

Caplinger is accused of obtaining raw steroid product from foreign countries including China and Turkey. According to the indictment, Caplinger would send the raw product to intermediaries in the United States for it to be "reshipped" to Oklahoma City where the manufacturing and distribution would take place.

Some of the raw products were also sent to Caplinger's Edmond address, the indictment stated.

According to the federal documents, Caplinger had third parties open post office boxes under fictitious company names for the payment to anabolic steroids to be sent. 

Caplinger is also accused of having third parties open and create PayPal accounts and bank accounts in their own names to help receive payments for the steroids. 

According to the indictment, Caplinger concealed the drug trafficking organization by posting fictitious and defunct company names but with real addresses in the return address section on the packages containing anabolic steroids being mailed.
