SAN JOSE (CBS/AP) — A San Jose police officer is out of jail following his arrest on suspicion of dealing marijuana that he kept at a storage facility.

Police say officer Son Vu was booked into Santa Clara County Jail on Tuesday on suspicion of possession of marijuana for sale. The 20-year veteran officer has been put on paid leave.

San Jose police Sgt. Heather Randol says police were called to a storage facility by employees who reported finding a substantial amount of marijuana.

Randol says police later determined that the 42-year-old Vu had rented the storage space.

Vu was released after posting $20,000 bail on Wednesday. He is due in court later this month.

A message at a listing for a “Son Vu” in San Jose was not immediately returned. KPIX-TV reports that Vu did not come to the door of his home.
