State and federal authorities on Thursday arrested four people — three in Lake Charles and one in Baton Rouge — who officials say were part of a “significant” steroid-distribution ring throughout south Louisiana.

During the arrests, officials reportedly seized about $80,000 in cash, more than 300 vials of steroids and two weapons, and they dismantled two labs they said were used to manufacture steroids.

In Lake Charles, officials arrested Jordan Berza, 26, Bryce Meaux, 23, and Christopher Gass, 24.

Gass was charged with possession of a Schedule III drug with intent to distribute. Berza and Meaux were charged with possession with intent and with possession of a weapon while engaged in a drug crime and with running a clandestine lab.

In Baton Rouge, officials arrested Terry Kuykendall, 24, on a charge of possession with intent to distribute.

The investigation into the ring began earlier this year, said state police Sgt. James Anderson.

Kuykendall was reportedly the distributor of the drugs, while Gass, Meaux and Berza were getting the steroids shipped in from China.
