BALTIMORE (AP) — A bail bondsman has testified that during the Baltimore unrest that followed the death of a black man in police custody, a gun trace task force sergeant brought him garbage bags full of looted pharmaceutical drugs.

The Baltimore Sun reports Donald Stepp testified Thursday at the federal racketeering trial of two task force officers. Six officers, including the sergeant, have pleaded guilty.

Stepp said that in 2015, during looting that followed the death of Freddie Gray, Sgt. Wayne Jenkins walked into Stepp's garage with two bags of pharmaceutical drugs. Jenkins has acknowledged a range of crimes, including re-selling the looted drugs.

Stepp pleaded guilty last month to possession of drugs with intent to distribute them. He has not yet been sentenced.
