OGDEN, Utah (AP) - A former Ogden police officer has pleaded not guilty to charges he arranged for two people to obtain the painkiller Oxycodone for him while he was serving as an officer.

The Deseret News reports (https://bit.ly/1PTQ9Vt ) 29-year-old Don Henry Johnson pleaded not guilty Monday to two felony drug distribution charges.

A message seeking comment about the charges Tuesday was not returned by Johnson’s attorneys Nathaniel Nelson and Heidi Bogus.

Police say Johnson joined the city police in August 2008. He was put on leave in October when allegations about the drugs surfaced. He resigned in January, shortly before charges were filed.

Johnson had been assigned to the Weber-Morgan Narcotics Strike Force.
