A former Parma Heights Police Officer pled not guilty at his arraignment Thursday morning.

Matthew Bell is accused of stealing drugs from the property room at the Parma Heights Police Station.

19 Action News Reporter Scott Taylor broke the story back in March.

Bell was placed on leave after the drugs came up missing and resigned a short time later.

He joined the department in 2007.

Bell is out on a $1500 bond and will be back in court on August 12 for a pre-trial.
