Bragg soldier, wife face steroids charges

Posted February 3, 2012

— Cumberland County authorities said Friday that they have arrested a Fort Bragg soldier and his wife after a search of their home turned up anabolic steroids.

Christopher Dwight Foust, 39, and Jennifer Ann Foust, 33, both of 870 Fredonia Drive in Fayetteville, were charged Thursday with possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a Schedule III drug and maintaining a dwelling for the sale and delivery of drugs.

Narcotics agents and members of the Special Response Team obtained a warrant to search the Fousts’ home and found steroids, syringes and a manual on how to produce, prepare and process steroids, authorities said.

Christopher Foust was remanded to the custody of the military under a $5,000 unsecured bond. Jennifer Foust was released from the Cumberland County Detention Center on a $5,000 unsecured bond.

    Just look at the Chris Benoit case and see why steroids are bad medicine. Ever heard of Roid Rage???? And besides it make your equipment shrink.

    Yes. I know you need the gov to tell you whats ok for you, but some of us are adults and can make adult decisions on our own.

    They both should have been arrested. I thought being a part of the armed services was an honor. To some I don't think so and they are a disgrace. May they both get their just.
    Well everybody knows that soldiers don't make much and the prez is always saying to start your own business... get creative... show that American spirit... so they did. Now the cops have some extra work to do too so they can keep their jobs and the lawyers, the jailer, the judge, the probation officers, clerks, and on and on. See how one hand feeds the other? Their property can be taken and auctioned, heck even the county auctioneer will make some money now too and more money for the pot, (no pun intended) and everyone is happy but the two that were just trying to get creative and make some extra bucks so they could spend more and stimulate the economy. I mean, buy more of the American pie. Know what I'm sayin'?

    Have you guys ever seen the this special response team. talking about abusing steroids, look at these guys. But who cares, they are doing something to be stronger so they can do a better job.

    Walk into Rapid or Golds and you could bust several guys with steroids on them.

    The steroids used for joint (inflammation aliments) are different then the steroids used for body building. The one for joints is cortisone, while the one for body building is an anabolic. Check out this link:

    Why would he risk his career over nonsense? He better make sure the counts for steriods is right, because you can't trust the POLICE AND THE SPECIAL RESPONSE TEAM. They will take some and sell, also and give inaccurate accounts.

    Glad the police have their priorities straight - that's the worst thing going on in Fayetteville? Police AND the Special Response Team -

    It seems as though If you can puncture your body in ungodly places then you should be able to inject steroids at will. Ugly piercings and devious placements should be just as dangeroud as steriods. Only objection I have is heroew of kids encouragin kids to do likewise just to excell. After all steroids are administered for inflamatory ailments.l Those who inject steroids should never have to be treated for arthritis or have joint replacements. Just one rightest opinion.
