We don't stand bail in the UK.
Whether he will be bailed or not is ultimately a decision for the custody sargeant.
If he is charged then I would imagine they will bail him. If he has no previous they are not going to keep him in until Monday on what is ultimately only a theft. I would not imagine they would keep him on remand for an of this nature whether you offer surety or not.
That decision will have to be made within 24 hour of his arrest though. They have 24 hours to charge or release from the date of arrest.
Can I clarify anything for you?
