Police: I-35 stop leads to robbery suspect

EDMOND — A loaded gun, a home invasion, an alleged gang member and strippers were part of an I-35 traffic stop that led to the arrest of a Kansas robbery suspect, according to an incident report.

During the evening commute period on April 14, Edmond Police Officer Neil Martin was heading north on I-35 when he noticed a maroon 2005 Dodge Magnum getting into the outside lane behind him, according to the report filed by Martin.

The vehicle, traveling faster than the rest of the traffic at an estimated 80-81 mph in the 70 mph zone, appeared to be changing lanes to avoid colliding with a vehicle in the center lane, Martin stated.

Martin stated that he stopped the vehicle and when he was at the driver’s window he noticed the odor of what he believed to be marijuana coming from the car. When the driver failed to produce a driver’s license, Martin had him step out of the car, the incident report states.

Martin stated he noticed what appeared to be a large amount of luggage in the vehicle and a wad of cash composed of multiple bundles held together with a rubber band sitting on the console.

Due to the odor of what he believed was marijuana, signs of nervousness and inconsistent stories from the driver and the two female passengers, he had his K9 partner Mambo conduct a free air search of the car, Martin stated in his report.

After Officer Page Hussey arrived, he and Martin conducted a probable cause search of the vehicle, the report stated.

In the center console, Hussey located a small metal grenade-shaped marijuana grinder that smelled like marijuana and contained drug residue, Martin stated. No one claimed ownership.

In the rear floorboard, Martin lifted a black Nike shoe that felt extremely heavy; stuffed inside was a loaded Cobra Arms .380-caliber semiautomatic handgun, the report stated. No one claimd ownership, the report stated.

During the search, the officers noticed a large amount of women’s swimwear/lingerie, lifted high heels and condoms, Martin stated. When he asked the females if they were strippers or prostitutes, they admitted to stripping in Houston but denied they are prostitutes, the report stated.

In the console was a purse with items including driver’s licenses belonging to two Kansas residents, Martin stated.

When he asked the occupants about the property, the driver said he knew about the wallet and “had gone through it” but he didn’t know where it came from or the owners, Martin stated.

A Kansas resident who discovered his wallet was missing while eating at a Wichita restaurant did not wish to press charges, Martin stated.

At the time, he was not able to contact two other apparent victims, Martin stated. He arrested Jaylyn Maurice Bradley, 20, of Wichita, Kan., and impounded the vehicle, he stated.

In front of officers, the cash found in the vehicle was counted and given to one of the female passengers, who were both given a ride to Second Street and I-35 where there are hotels and an open gas station, Martin stated.

At the city jail, he contacted one of the two other individuals whose driver’s license was found in the car, Martin stated. She said she surrendered her wallet during a home invasion that occurred April 4 in Wichita, the report stated.

The victim of the robbery said she didn’t report it at the time because the suspects threatened to kill her if she did, Martin stated. She described the suspect down to his tattoos and knew him as an alleged Bloods gang member with the street name “J,” the report stated.

On April 18, the officer states in his report that he was contacted by a woman who said her Kansas driver’s license was stolen on about Dec. 23, 2011, while she was stopping at a Walmart in Wichita, Martin stated.

She was putting her things in the car when a black male approached and showed her jewelry he had, Martin stated. He was talking fast and asked her if she  was interested in buying anything; when she said she was not interested, he abruptly disppeared, the report stated.

After thinking the encounter was very odd, the woman discovered that her wallet was missing, Martin stated. She filed a report with the Wichita PD; she told Martin she did not recognize the suspect but did wish to pursue charges, Martin stated.

In the local incident, Bradley was arrested on complaints of possession of a firearm while in commission of a felony, concealing/possession of/receiving stolen property, possession of drug paraphernalia and cited for speeding, Martin stated.

On April 15, initial criminal probable cause paperwork against Bradley was filed in Oklahoma County District Court, according to court records.

On April 16, a probable cause hearing was held and probable cause found. Bond was set at $10,000. He was released that same day from the Oklahoma County jail.

Future court dates have not been posted. Bradley has not yet entered a plea in court. And no attorney information was available in the online court database.

A Wichita detective was assigned the case and follow-up on that incident was ongoing, the Edmond report states. | 341-2121, ext. 108
