Police have arrested a 31-year-old man accused of manufacturing steroids in his Watertown apartment.
Reid Behrle, of 306 Woodbury Road in Watertown, is facing a string of drug charges, including possession of narcotics within 1500 feet of a school, possession with intent to sell and operating a drug factory.
Police said no one had heard from Behrle for days prior to his arrest, and officers responded to his apartment July 15 to check on him.
They arrived to find the apartment door open and Behrle asleep on the couch, surrounded by pills, bottles and bags of powder, along with labeled anabolic steroids, according to police.
Officers searched his apartment and found a registered DEA encapsulation machine, empty pill capsules, powder and liquid steroids, Xanax pills and drug manufacturing products, police said.
Behrle was arrested and held on $50,000 bond. He was arraigned July 16.
