Disgraced Edmond officer’s home raided in illegal steroids sting

EDMOND Okla. — News 4 sources confirm a retired Edmond police officer is at the center of a federal illegal steroid sting.

Wednesday morning, the home of retired officer Chris Caplinger was raided as part of an illegal steroid sting.

Edmond Police assisted the US Drug Enforcement Agency in their search of Caplinger’s home in the 800 block of Benton Road.

Caplinger has been in trouble with the law before.

He pleaded guilty in 2009 for his role in accepting money to help drunk drivers avoid prosecution.

Caplinger’s scheme also brought down well-known Oklahoma City defense attorneys Josh Welch, David Ogle and Sam Kerr.

Sources say that police seized drugs, weapons and cash from inside Caplinger’s home.

Officers also raided a second location in Oklahoma City as part of their investigation.

DEA investigators believe the properties are part of an illegal steroids operation.

Caplinger retired from the Edmond Police Department in 2004 after 20 years on the force.
