Gabriel Albala, 45, from Margate, Fla. was ordered to be kept without bond after an appointment at the Federal Court of Fort Lauderdale on Friday.

The FBI interviewed Albala on Thursday morning before arresting him in the afternoon, according to FBI Miami.

Boynton Beach Chief of Police, Michael G. Gregory said in a statement that Albala had been relieved of duty following his arrest.

"This morning, agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation interviewed a Boynton Beach Police Officer in regard to an ongoing federal investigation," Gregory said. "This afternoon, the officer was taken into federal custody and relieved of duty ... While this investigation has drawn the scrutiny of this particular officer's conduct, it is not reflective of all the women and men who serve this community."

The paper reported that Albala's next court appearance is set for Sept 4 and his arraignment is scheduled for Sept. 13.
