LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Los Angeles police officer has pleaded not guilty to charges that he sold drugs to an undercover detective from his own department.

Prosecutors say 40-year-old Randolph Agard entered the plea Tuesday to two counts of selling a controlled substance. He faces up to five years in state prison if convicted.

Prosecutors say in April, Agard replied to an online ad looking to buy drugs and traveled to an arranged meeting spot. The ad was posted by LAPD narcotics officers.

Authorities say Agard was arrested with 20 hydrocodone pills in his jacket.

He's free pending a July court date but police say he's been removed from street patrol.
