(KARACHI, Pakistan) -- The FBI agent arrested in Pakistan earlier this week was granted bail by a Pakistani court on Thursday.
The agent was reportedly arrested for carrying ammunition in an airport. A Pakistani police official said that during further investigation into the agent, a U.S. national, local authorities discovered 15 9mm bullets, a magazine, three knives, a laptop and other “very sensitive material,” including jamming and other “high-tech” equipment.
The agent was still in jail on Thursday morning, but was expected to be released upon completion of court formalities. His bail was granted against surety bonds worth $9,800 U.S. dollars.
