Jury convicts city man, 25, of felony drug possession
SCHENECTADY - A 25-year-old man accused of leaping from a window during a drug raid was convicted by a jury Thursday night on drug possession charges, Chief Assistant District Attorney Alfred D. Chapleau said. Jerry Bradley faces sentencing Jan. 8 before visiting county Judge Joseph M. Sise, on his convictions for third-degree and fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, both felonies. Bradley was arrested March 19, after the Schenectady Police Department's Special Operations Squad, along with Vice Squad officers, raided a second floor apartment at 801 Bridge St., in the Mont Pleasant section of the city. Police entered the apartment, according to what officers said at the time, and ordered three people to the floor. Bradley, however, jumped out a second-floor window and fled on foot down Bridge Street toward Crane Street, police said. Along the way, he discarded 27 bags of crack cocaine with a combined weight of more than an eighth of an ounce, Chapleau said. Sgt. Michael F. Hamilton caught up with Bradley in a third-floor apartment at Crane Street and Second Avenue, according to Chapleau. Bradley claimed police had the wrong man. Bradley, formerly of Westover Place, was being held pending sentencing in the Schenectady County Jail. Randall E. Kehoe represented Bradley.
