A POLICE officer charged with theft was held overnight in remand and told to bring a surety to court.

Semi Sanaila, a crime writer with the Lami Police Station allegedly misappropriated $2000 from exhibits.

Mr Sanaila told the court he understood the charges and chose to seek a private lawyer.

A plea was deferred.

The prosecution told the court full disclosures, including the charge sheet, had been served on the accused. The prosecution did not object to bail but asked for strict conditions.

Mr Sanaila was told to bring a surety today if he wants to be released on bail.

Meanwhile, a man charged with burglary was told to make a proper bail application.

Meli Cakau is alleged to have entered Laxman Apartments in Suva and stole tools and machinery worth $3700.

He told the court he would seek help from the Legal Aid Commission. Mr Cakau did not enter a plea, however, the prosecution objected to bail.

The court remanded Mr Cakau until his next court appearance.
