The policeman who was held at the Portmore police lockup with contraband was yesterday granted bail in the sum of $250,000 during his court appearance.

When the matter came up 38-year-old Richard Stoner pleaded not guilty to possession of ganja, dealing in ganja and breaches of the Corrections Act.

He defended himself and made a successful bail application.

Bail was granted on condition that Stoner reports twice weekly to the Hunts Bay police station and surrender his travel documents.

A curfew order from 9 at nights to 8 in the mornings was also imposed on him.

Stoner was also warned not to contact any of the witnesses in the case.

The police constable was taken into custody on Sunday after $37,000 along with nine ounces of ganja and tobacco were found on him.

He is to return to court on January 21 next year.
