A police lieutenant who was charged in a federal drug crimes case has recently been granted bail. The judge ruled to set the man's bond at $500,000 during his bond hearing. Still, the ex-police lieutenant, who was charged with drug offenses and other crimes, will have to don an ankle bracelet monitoring system and give up his passport during the remainder of his criminal proceedings.
According to the man's defense attorney, he was granted bond because of his status as a decorated and honored police officer with 22 years in the service. The accused man, who allegedly goes by the nickname "The Milk Man," also has excellent ties with his family and the community, his attorney said. Further, he agreed to appear at a New Jersey hearing within the next couple of weeks.
