A Richard Stockton College police officer arrested Wednesday by the Drug Enforcement Agency has been charged with selling oxycodone pills to an undercover officer, according to a federal complaint.

DEA members arrested Marcus Taylor, a seven-year veteran campus police officer, said Sharon Schulman, CEO of external affairs and institutional research at the college.

A complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Camden charges Taylor with three counts of possession and distribution of the drug, alleging he sold to an undercover officer Nov. 28, Jan. 4 and Jan. 23.

Those sales took place in Camden County, the complaint said.

Schulman said the investigation is being handled by the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Taylor, whose salary is $76,243, has been placed on suspension, Schulman said.
