BALTIMORE (WJZ/AP) –A Baltimore police officer charged with being part of an international drug ring has been ordered to remain in federal custody.

Mike Schuh has the breaking details.

Officer Daniel Redd was going to be let free until trial.

On Thursday, a judge determined that Redd would be released Friday into his mother’s custody and placed under electronic home monitoring. But an appeal overturned that decision, forcing Redd to be detained until his trial.

Redd was arrested last month and charged with selling heroin supplied from Africa.

According to court documents, Redd sometimes made calls related to drug deals while on duty as a police officer and in March gave heroin to a co-defendant in the Northwest District Police Station parking lot while in uniform.

Prosecutors say that Redd admitted after his arrest that he had participated in three drug transactions. Redd’s attorney did not address that claim in court on Thursday.
