BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) — A South Florida man is facing charges of breaking into a car and stealing documents related to Major League Baseball's investigation into players' use of performance-enhancing drugs.
Boca Raton police say 20-year-old Reginald St. Fleur stole the documents from a car belonging to Porter Fischer, a former marketing director of the now-shuttered Biogenesis of America clinic. That clinic allegedly provided banned substances to New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez and other players.
St. Fleur's lawyer says he is innocent. MLB has acknowledged purchasing the records from another man, but officials say they didn't know the documents were stolen.
Police told The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/1crvTVf ) that blood matching St. Fleur's DNA was found on Fischer's car.
Rodriguez is appealing a 211-game suspension. Other players were suspended for 50 games.
