Milford man faces charges including
weapons violations
in connection
with illegal deer drive near Bridgeville 

SEAFORD (Jan. 22, 2016) Following an investigation, Fish & Wildlife Natural Resources Police arrested a Milford man Jan. 20 for weapons and hunting violations related to an illegal deer drive on Marshy Hope Wildlife Area west of Bridgeville.

Gerald L. Bradley, 53, was charged with two felony counts of possession of a firearm/ammunition by a person prohibited and one count each of unlicensed hunting and participating in an unlawful deer drive on state lands. A shotgun and 12 rounds of ammunition were seized as evidence.

Following video arraignment in Justice of the Peace Court 2 in Rehoboth Beach, Bradley was released on $2,500 unsecured bond on the weapons and hunting-related charges, pending a preliminary hearing, but was then remanded to the Sussex Correctional Institution in Georgetown in lieu of $100 secured bond for an unrelated warrant out of Superior Court.

Six other individuals involved in the illegal deer drive also were cited for one count each of participating in an unlawful deer drive on state lands and fined $107 each, including court costs.
