Bradley has long history of run-ins with law enforcement
From Staff Reports
A local man will spend the next nine years in a federal penitentiary for trafficking drugs.
Mack Allen Bradley, 49, was sentenced last week by U.S. District Judge Halil Sul Ozerden to 108 months in federal prison, followed by five years of supervised release, for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst and Christopher Freeze, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Mississippi, made the announcement concerning Bradley’s sentencing last Friday.
Bradley, of Benndale, was stopped July 29, 2016, after agents observed him meeting with another individual in an area of McLain where numerous drug arrests had taken place. After what appeared to be an attempt to elude the officers, Bradley’s vehicle was stopped and, after consent to search, approximately an ounce of 98 percent pure methamphetamine was discovered in the vehicle.
Bradley pled guilty on Dec. 21, 2018, to one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
Known by police as a member of the Gangster Disciples street gang, Bradley has a long rap sheet in Greene County and elsewhere dating back to the early 1990s when he was convicted of larceny of an automobile. He has served multiple stints in state and federal prisons. He was released from prison by the Department of Justice in 2015 and reportedly had roughly two years remaining on parole from his latest federal conviction when he was arrested on the latest charges in 2016.
The case was investigated by the FBI and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney John Meynardie.
