Bail hearing Friday for Montreal police officer, charged with drug trafficking

MONTREAL — A Montreal police officer charged with drug trafficking and possessing a prohibited weapon will appear before a judge Friday to seek bail.

Philippe Bonenfant, 29, was charged Thursday with drug trafficking, counselling another person to commit a criminal act, possession of brass knuckles and the fraudulent use of a police computer.

A Montreal police commander described Bonenfant as a patrol officer with six years of experience, stationed at a downtown police station.

He was arrested Wednesday afternoon and the Crown objected to his release.

A bail hearing is to be held Friday in Montreal.
