ALBANY — A Stillwater man with ties to a Dutch outlaw motorcycle gang pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court on Thursday to selling steroids and international money laundering for the performance-enhancing drugs he acquired in the mail from Thailand.

Sean Dubanowich, 43, who was convicted of a federal drug felony in 2000 unrelated to steroids.

He is an associate of the Satudarah motorcycle club and onetime member of the Rock Machine biker gang, according to court papers and his attorney.

The stocky defendant, a weight lifter, obtained the performance-enhancing drugs from Thailand and sold them in the United States and Canada.

U.S. District Court Judge Mae D'Agostino ordered Dubanowich — who has traveled to the Netherlands in recent years, according to his attorney — not to associate with members of the Satudarah biker club. The Dutch club's website shows it has chapters in 21 countries, including the United States where the only two chapters were listed as Central New York and Northeast New York
