BRIDGETON, N.J. (AP) - A suspended southern New Jersey police officer has been found not guilty of selling steroids.

Bridgeton Patrolman Robert Smith had been accused of selling oxandrolone anabolic steroids to a fellow officer in January 2012.

The 4-year veteran has been suspended without pay since. His attorney says Smith was found not guilty Thursday on a count of distribution of a controlled dangerous substance.

His lawyer says Smith is very happy that he was “vindicated” after more than four years.

Chief Michael Gaimari declined to comment on the verdict and a representative of the Cumberland County Prosecutor’s Office couldn’t be reached for comment.
