The U.S. Attorney's Office says Ryan Shawn Kennelly, 39, received a package from India to his post office box in Kennewick containing more than 1,500 anabolic steroid tablets in December 2010. The package was searched by U.S. Post Office Inspectors after receiving a federal warrant.
Two months before the package from India arrived, Grant County authorities had seized steroids from Kennelly's Moses Lake home.
Kennelly was sentenced Thursday. He will also be on a three-year supervised release after he serves his time in prison. He pleaded guilty in March.
According to the Tri-City Herald, Kennelly held the World Powerlifting Organization's bench press record in 2008 by pressing 1,075 pounds.
