The operator of an Amherst training center was arrested by State Police and other agencies Friday in what was described as a continuing investigation into the shipment and use of steroids.

Michael T. Catalano, 50, was arrested at his Catalano Personal Training at 1842 Maple Road, Williamsville, and charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. He is to appear in Amherst Town Court on Feb. 25.

The probe is being conducted by the State Police Special Investigations Unit, federal Homeland Security investigators, U.S. Postal inspectors and the Amherst Police Department.
