Two individuals associated with the Rochester Raiders indoor football team were arrested this week in connection to a 6-month long drug investigation, including the team’s medical director and a linebacker. At least one other individual was arrested in the initial bust that spanned five local counties and involved some degree of undercover police work.

The team’s owner pointed out to the D&C that this investigation was not focused on the team and it is unfortunate that two of their associates were involved in this scandal. He also said that he had not heard about the investigation until yesterday right around the time the arrests were made.

In the end, over 170 prescription pads, five doctor’s DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) ID numbers, and several thousand dollars were seized. At a press conference this morning, they said that as many as a dozen more arrests are expected as the investigation continues–including at least one other Raiders player.
