A former Glendora police officer pleaded no contest today to grand theft and possessing methamphetamine.

Timothy Radogna, 34, was sentenced to 180 days in county jail and three years of probation and ordered to complete a 24-month drug rehabilitation program, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office.

He could have received a maximum term of nine years and eight months in state prison.

Radogna was arrested in May after he was accused of stealing hundreds of dollars from the Glendora Police Department and possessing drugs.

Radgona was also ordered to repay $500 to the department, authorities said.
