PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- A Gresham police officer who stole discarded prescription medications from a drop-off box at station headquarters has pleaded guilty to official misconduct and been sentenced to probation.

Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge Eric Bergstrom also ordered Robert Fay to complete drug treatment, perform 60 hours of community service and surrender his police certification.

Fay, a detective sergeant, told Oregon State Police investigators he accessed the drop box four times, but only took controlled substances on two occasions, one being a placebo pill placed by detectives during the investigation.

Investigators found no instances of Fay tampering with drugs in the evidence room at police headquarters.
