VANCOUVER - A former Vancouver police officer accused of selling marijuana while on duty has been granted bail.

Peter Hodson was freed under a surety of $65,000 and must obey more than a dozen restrictions, including a curfew of midnight to 6 a.m.

He was arrested April 21 at Vancouver police headquarters and immediately fired.

He's accused of drug trafficking, breach of trust and break and enter with the intent to commit extortion.

A civilian, Oscar Lapitan, has also been charged with trafficking pot alongside Hodson over activities allegedly occurring from early last December to April 20, the day before Hodson's arrest.

Hodson, who was a police officer for nearly five years, is also facing a separate charge linked to his arrest for impaired driving a year and a half ago. (CKNW)
