MSFTF LogoMartinsburg, WV - On February 23, 2017 the Mountain State Fugitive Task Force comprised of members from the United States Marshals Service, West Virginia State Police, Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office, Martinsburg Police Department and West Virginia Department of Parole arrested Shane Bradley 24, of Brooklyn New York at 1901 Specks Run Rd, Bunker Hill West Virginia. Shane Bradley was wanted by the West Virginia State Police on the charge of Attempted Murder in Berkeley County, West Virginia. Bradley also had a Capias outstanding thru the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office on drug distribution charges.

Shane Bradley’s charges stemmed from an investigation conducted by the West Virginia State Police. On September 20, 2015 Shane Bradley shot the victim over an argument related to their drug dealing in Berkeley County West Virginia then fled the scene. At the conclusion of the State Police investigation warrants were obtained for Shane Bradley on May 4, 2016. Bradley was charged with Attempted Murder and other crimes from the items located in the apartment on the 4000 block of Winchester Ave where the shooting took place.

On September 20, 2016, the West Virginia State Police referred the warrant to the fugitive task force for apprehension. During the course of the investigation the Task Force received a tip, over the Presidents Day weekend on two possible locations Shane Bradley may be hiding at. Investigative efforts conducted by the fugitive task force lead to the midday arrest of Bradley on Specks Run Road.

Information related to the charges on Shane Bradley can be obtained from the West Virginia State Police. Warrant records can be obtained from Berkeley County Magistrate court.

In an area where law enforcement battles manpower issues, Bradley’s arrest is a great example of what federal and local law enforcement can accomplish when they work together to protect the community.
