Pr. George's officer pleads not guilty

By Maria Glod

A Prince George's County police officer charged in a cocaine trafficking conspiracy pleaded not guilty Thursday in federal court.

Sinisa Simic, 25, who joined the force in 2007, allegedly transported cocaine from Virginia into Maryland. Prosecutors have said in court that he planned to "badge" his way out of trouble if he was stopped by law enforcement officers.

Authorities have said they learned of the cocaine conspiracy while investigating a scheme to transport black-market cigarettes and alcohol. Two other police officers have been charged in that scheme, which authorities say was uncovered during a sweeping corruption probe in Prince George's County.

During Thursday's brief hearing, prosecutors did not elaborate on the charges against Simic. He is accused of working with another man, Mirza Kujundzic, 30, of Woodbridge. Kujundzic also has entered a not guilty plea.
