A $75,000 bond was approved by a Broward County judge and was expected to be posted Thursday afternoon on behalf of Broward Sheriff's Office (BSO) Deputy Eduardo Mesa, who was awaiting release following his arrest Wednesday.


Mesa is charged with keeping prescription drugs he confiscated following the suicide of a man on the Pompano Beach train tracks.


The deputy is also accused of taking the rest of the man's belongings and throwing them in the garbage.


Mesa is a 16-year veteran of the BSO.


He faces a list of charges, including armed trafficking, since he had his gun at the time he allegedly swiped the medication.
