Police officer Gideon released on bail
Friday, March 26th, 2010
Gideon’s bail came with conditions which include that Gideon has to appear in the San Pedro Magistrate’s Court whenever the case comes before the court; and since he is a resident of Sand Hill Village, he is required to report to the local Police Station three days per week and he must not interfere with any of the witnesses in any way.
Gideon remains interdicted from police duties, pending the outcome of the criminal charges against him.
Gideon was charged in San Pedro along with two others for kidnapping, beating and robbing vegetable vendor Juan Perez of $350 during the process of searching for drugs on the morning of Sunday, February 21.
