A deposit of $5,000 had to be made out of his $30,000 bail to facilitate the release of Daiquan Martin, who is now no longer on remand, after that requirement was met.
Other bail conditions set on Wednesday for the immigration officer included getting two sureties and surrendering his travel documents. And, while out on bail, he must report to the St. John’s Police Station every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.
His trial in the All Saints Magistrate’s Court is set for June 6.
 Martin had been in custody since Friday when the police arrested him and co-accused Troy Baptiste, in whose Bendals home the police found a .380 pistol and eight rounds of matching bullets, 310 grammes of cured cannabis and 149 cannabis plants.
Earlier this week, Martin pleaded not guilty to all the charges.
Baptiste pleaded guilty to possession of the pistol and eight matching rounds of ammunition, possession of the cannabis plants and possession of the cured  cannabis.
He, however, denied the charge of possession with intent to transfer the drugs to others.
