8:58 A.M. — A Collier County fitness trainer and his wife were arrested Thursday after detectives seized about $20,000 worth of suspected steroids, along with marijuana and firearms, from their Golden Gate home.

Nicholas Munson Troemner, 28, and Veronica Daniela Troemner, 29, were arrested after detectives with the sheriff's Vice and Narcotics Bureau searched the couple's home at 5440 Teak Wood Drive.

Nicholas Troemner was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of marijuana over 20 grams, possession of a firearm by a Florida convicted felon, possession of ammunition by a Florida convicted felon, failure to register as a convicted felon, and possession of narcotic paraphernalia.
