A Williamsport man is incarcerated following a casual conversation with two police officers, after he allegedly confessed that a warrant had been issued for his arrest and he had a small amount of drugs on him.
Mitchell Duane Bradley, 30, of 1920 Green Ave., Lot No. T20, faces charges that include possession of a controlled substance and possession of a small amount of marijuana for personal use.
According to the affidavit, two members of the Old Lycoming Police Department were having a casual conversation with Bradley about 10:30 p.m. on March 31. During the course of their chat, the officers learned that an active bench warrant had been issued for Bradley. They subsequently took him into custody.
Prior to being searched, Bradley allegedly confessed to police that he had a small amount of cocaine and marijuana on him, for personal use.
After searching Bradley, police allegedly found a small bag of cocaine, a small bag of marijuana and another, larger bag, which Bradley explained contained baking soda. Bradley allegedly explained that he had been planning to "cut" the baking soda into the cocaine, according to police.
No exact totals for any of the substances were listed in the affidavit.
