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