Columbia man charged with drug trafficking, gun found in bed with baby

A Columbia man was indicted Monday by a federal grand jury for drug trafficking and having an illegal gun.

When 34-year-old Ramelus Bradley was arrested, officers found drugs and guns in the home, and a gun hidden under a pillow where a baby was laying.

Bradley is charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute, and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Law enforcement went to Bradley’s house to serve a search warrant on August 21, and when he didn’t answer, they forced their way in.

Investigators found Bradley in the living room within arm’s reach of three guns when they entered the room.

They also found about 22 grams of marijuana at his feet in plain sight.

There were two infant children in the home at the time of the search.

Officers found $12,258 in a pocket of Bradley’s shorts in the master bedroom of the house.

Investigators also found 6.5 ounces of cocaine, several unidentified pills, and marijuana packaged for sale. There was also a digital scale with cocaine residue inside Bradley’s truck.
