Former Pulaski police officer released on bond

A former Pulaski police officer arrested on drug charges in two neighboring counties has been released on bond.
According to officials at New River Valley Regional Jail, Christopher Franklin Bond was released from custody Monday after posting a $50,000 bond. A condition of his release is that he be placed on home electronic monitoring.
Bond was originally arrested in Wythe County June 11. He was released on bond briefly before being arrested again June 15 on charges in Carroll County. He tendered his resignation from Pulaski Police Department two days later.
Bond faces a total of five drug charges and faces up to 27 years in prison as the result of an ongoing drug investigation spearheaded by Virginia State Police.
In Wythe County, Bond faces three charges: attempt to possess methamphetamine, attempt to possess Lortab and possession of marijuana. In Carroll County, the charges are possession of a Schedule II drug (suspected methamphetamine) and possession of a Schedule II drug with a firearm.
According to Virginia State Police Sgt. M.T. Conroy, Bond was arrested in Wythe County when he “showed up to a drug transaction” and allegedly attempted to purchase methamphetamine and Lortab at a Wythe County residence. Bond apparently lives in Austinville in Carroll County, but at the Wythe County line.
The Carroll County charges are the result of a search of Bond’s 7089 Coulson Church Road residence, which allegedly turned up a suspected methamphetamine pipe and seven firearms (rifles, shotguns and pistols), Conroy said.

Bond is scheduled for a preliminary hearing July 21 at 10 a.m. in Carroll County General District Court and on Aug. 27 at 9 a.m. in Wythe County General District Court.
