Police are searching for an alleged steroid dealer who they say damaged his parents’ home and car before fleeing his township home this week, Wyckoff Police Chief Benjamin Fox announced in a release Thursday.
Tyler Speziale, 20, had a violent argument with his parents in their Griner Court home Sunday afternoon, during which he “caused considerable damage to a car, and windows and doors in the home,” Fox said. Speziale had already, “fled on foot,” when police officers responded to a domestic disturbance call at the house, Fox said.
During an investigation, police found methamphetamines, anabolic steroids, testosterone drugs, narcotics, syringes, a digital scale and baggies in Speziale’s bedroom, Fox said.
Warrants were put out for his arrest, charging him with possession and distribution of anabolic steroids, possession of marijuana, prescription legend drugs, drug paraphernalia and hypodermic needles, and improper destruction of hypodermic needles, Fox said.
Police say Speziale’s whereabouts are unknown, but that they are “actively” searching for him.
“He is believed to be in the company of a female friend,” Fox said. "We believe she is with [Speziale] voluntarily, we have no reason to think otherwise. But, her parents are very worried so we are hoping that someone will get the message to her to contact them."
Fox said he believes the duo is "someplace in the immediate area."
According to MaxPreps.com, Speziale is a 2011 Ramapo High School grad with an impressive football record as a wide receiver for the Raiders.
Anyone with information about Speziale’s whereabouts is asked to call the Wyckoff Police Department at Wyckoff Police at 201-891-2121.
