A veteran Omaha air traffic controller has been accused by Douglas County prosecutors of intending to sell anabolic steroids.
Christopher J. Bowers was charged with a felony in connection with the allegation.
Bowers, 45, has been employed by the Federal Aviation Administration since December 1990, and began working in Omaha in January 1994, the agency said.
He was assigned to perform administrative duties after he was arrested at his Omaha home just after 7:30 a.m. April 20.
Police declined to release detailed information on the case.
Bowers had never been charged with a crime in Nebraska or in federal court, according to court records.
The FAA said it was “cooperating fully” with the investigation.
His attorney, Debra Cunningham, did not return a call seeking a response to the allegations.
Bowers waived a preliminary hearing and the case will be handled in Douglas County District Court. — Emerson Clarridge
