The Houston County Sheriff’s Office Website, recently posted an updated booking photo of Tramaine Bradley which is drastically different from the way he looked at the time of his arrest on February 10, 2016 along with Ernest Whitehurst.
Houston County Sheriff’s deputies seized nearly 5 pounds of synthetic marijuana, known as spice, which had an estimated street value of around $6,500 and arrested the two men on drug trafficking charges as part of a four month long drug distribution investigation.
Both Bradley and Whitehurst were taken to the Houston County Jail and each held on $1.5 million bail.In addition to the manufacture and distribution charges Houston County Sheriff Donald Valenza stated that Bradley was also charged with resisting arrest.
Interestingly whilst held in the jail no one has been allowed to visit Bradley, its hard to say whether its been due to the visitation policy or whether the HCSO have been trying to conceal Bradley’s injuries from the public at the time of arrest, and as he was due to appear in court 03/07/2016, given the heightened racial tension since the release of documents by the Henry County Report revealing racism within the Dothan Police Department and the planting of drugs and guns on young black men. The Department Of Justice have requested those affected to contact them directly on 202 307 6999, the NAACP have announced that they have formally opened an investigation too.
