Asst. Supt. of Police Glenroy Weekes has been remanded to prison to await his next hearing.
Prosecutors accused Weekes of stealing money while battling a blaze at XPZ Supermarket on Tuesday.
Investigators say they also found Weekes with an illegal firearm and ammunition.
His legal team says they will await disclosure from the prosecution before their client answers the charges.
Magistrate Conliffe Clarke gave prosecutors 21 days to disclose the evidence.
In Antigua and Barbuda, magistrates cannot grant bail for weapon offenses.
But Weekes’ attorneys say they will apply for bail in the High court, pending the defendant’s next hearing on Sept. 6.
The magistrate did not entertain arguments on the larceny charge.
Weekes has been suspended from duties pending the outcome of the matter.
