Greenland man faces steroid possession charges

PORTSMOUTH — A Greenland man who once recanted his guilty pleas to bar-fight assault charges now faces nine felonies alleging he was in possession of anabolic steroids.

Police allege liquid and powder steroids were found in the home of Cullen Mutrie, 28, of 517 Post Road, when officers went there to confiscate guns after Mutrie's arrest on charges alleging domestic assault. According to an affidavit by Officer Wayne Young, the steroids were found in Mutrie's living room coffee table on July 24, 2010, but were not verified as steroids by the state crime lab until Jan. 18.

Young's affidavit states Mutrie was barred from possessing firearms after he was arrested for allegedly assaulting a woman and police had information that Mutrie had "a few" guns in his bedroom, one in his vehicle, one in his living room and usually carried one on his person. When police went to his home last July, they were looking for a gun in the coffee table and found a scale and a plastic bag filled with vials of substances, according to the affidavit.

After obtaining a search warrant, police seized the vials and the contents have since tested positive for multiple types of steroids including testosterone cypionate, trenbolone acetate and nandrolone decanote, according to court records.

Police arrested Mutrie for the nine felonies on Jan. 19 and according to the complaints, he is 6-foot three-inches tall and weighs 275 pounds. Following Mutrie's arrest, he was released on $10,000 personal recognizance bail and he's scheduled to be arraigned Feb. 8 in Portsmouth District Court.

In Nov. of 2007, Mutrie was allowed to take back guilty pleas to assault charges because, a judge ruled, he misunderstood his lawyer’s advice and the potential career consequences. He pleaded guilty on August 14, 2007, to two class A misdemeanor simple assault charges stemming from a fight at the Portsmouth Gas Light Co. As part of a negotiated plea agreement with the prosecution, he was sentenced to serve two days in the Rockingham County House of Corrections.

He subsequently filed to withdraw the pleas because, he told the court, he didn’t realize the resulting conviction would hurt his chances of becoming a firefighter. When he entered the guilty plea, he told a judge, he was “under the impression” that only a felony conviction could prevent him from being hired as a firefighter.

“I took it out of convenience,” he said at the time.

In 2009 Mutrie pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of disorderly conduct and was ordered to perform community service and complete an anger management program.
