A veteran policeman was arrested on Monday morning on suspicion of stealing bullets from shooting ranges and selling them for profit, the Justice Ministry's Police Investigations Department said on Tuesday.

The suspect, named as Abd al-Jafar Sa'adi, allegedly stole 80 bullets on several occasions, PID representative Noa Limor told The Jerusalem Magistrate's Court during a remand hearing. 

Sa'adi's attorney, Ariel Atari, said the money Sa'adi allegedly received for the bullets was an innocent loan unconnected with the bullets. 

Limor told the court the policeman repeatedly asked to be taken to hospital by ambulance "and did not cooperate" during questioning on Monday.
