    An Easton police commissioner is facing federal charges after a wiretap revealed his involvement in an international steroid and prescription drug trafficking ring, according to the U.S. attorney's office.

    Raymond Martin, 48, a member of the Easton Police Commission, was arrested Tuesday and charged with conspiring to possess and sell oxycodone. He's one of a dozen people arrested in connection with the case.

    Federal prosecutors said a court-authorized wiretap caught Martin texting other members of the drug trafficking ring about selling anabolic steroids and oxycodone.

    Federal authorities investigating the case seized hundreds of vials of steroids, 600 grams of raw testosterone powder, more than 1,000 oxycodone pills, 350 grams of powder cocaine and four long guns, according to the U.S. attorney's office.

    Martin could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted. It's not clear if he has an attorney.
