Cop accused of stealing money during operation gets bail

A cop who is accused pocketing $30,000 during a police operation was granted $100,000 bail when he appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday.

Frederick Morant, who is attached to the Organised Crime Investigation Division (OCID), is to return to court on August 26, for trial.

Allegations are that on June 20, about 3 p.m., police officers were carrying out an operation at a wholesale on Waltham Park Road in Kingston for uncustomed goods.

It is alleged that during the search, the owner of the establishment was present and claimed that she lost $30,000 that was hidden under a mattress.

The court heard that Morant's colleagues noticed him acting suspiciously and notified their supervisor.

It is alleged that during a search of Morant, the cash fell from one of his pockets.

Morant, who has denied the allegations, is to surrender his travel documents as a condition of his bail.
