GREENBELT, Md. (AP) — A former Prince George’s County police officer has pleaded guilty to selling cocaine to an undercover agent and protecting the transport of untaxed cigarettes.

 

Sinisa Simic pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court in Greenbelt, Md. The Woodbridge, Va., man is scheduled for sentencing on Sept. 23.

 

Simic admitted protecting the sale and transport of multiple shipments of contraband cigarettes in Maryland, Virginia and elsewhere. Prosecutors say he was paid by a source and an undercover agent working with the FBI.

The 25-year-old Simic was indicted in November as part of a sweeping investigation into corruption in the county.
