KUSA - A former 39-year-old Glendale police officer was taken into custody by the FBI on drug charges Thursday.

Sources told 9NEWS that Scott Black was arrested as part of an FBI drug investigation. There are other people involved. The investigation took several months.

He and Oscar S. Garcia,35, were indicted by a federal grand jury on charges related to drug trafficking, making false statements, and unauthorized access of law enforcement databases.

Glendale Police Captain Mike Gross said Black resigned from his position with the Glendale Police Department Nov. 20, 2013.

Gross said Black notified the police department he'd been contacted by the FBI and was involved in its investigation.

Black was an officer at the time of his resignation. He had been with the Glendale Police Department for five years.

Officer Scott Black was at one point a training coordinator for the department.

Black had 13 years of law enforcement experience and served four years with the U.S. Army.

Gross said to his knowledge no other member of the Glendale Police Department are a part of this probe.
