NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla. –
A man accused of shooting a North Miami Beach police officer during an identity theft sting walked out of jail overnight.
Elton Bandoo was fit with a GPS ankle monitor and transported by officers to a relative’s home, where he must stay under house arrest.
Miami-Dade County Judge Jason Bloch granted Bandoo a $500,000 bond Tuesday after family members posted the required 10 percent of the bail money needed for his release, with collateral money tied up in property in the Bahamas. His family handed over signed documents to the court, allowing the state to put a lien on the property if Bandoo skips town.
