    Four Federal Bureau of Investigation employees have been arrested for allegedly concealing steroid use on government documents.

    Three of the employees arrested Wednesday were special agents, and the fourth was an intelligence analyst. The arrests stem from false statements made on medical forms that are used to evaluate an employee's fitness for duty, prosecutors said.

    Officials with the U.S. Attorney's Office said the employees received numerous prescriptions for anabolic steroids and human growth hormone without medical necessities.

    The arrested employees include Washington field office special agents 42-year-old James Drew Barnett and 42-year-old Katia Litton.

    Litton's husband Matthew Litton, a special agent in the Critical Incident Response Group and intelligence analyst 45-year-old Ali Sawan were also arrested.
