Drug Bust in Brandon

The Brandon Police Department issued the following statement.


In our continued efforts to curb the flow of illegal drugs into our community, at 9:30 this morning a Brandon Police officer seized six pounds of marijuana at a traffic stop on Interstate 20. While talking to the driver, 56-year-old Charlotte Bradshaw of Eureka, California, the officer noticed marijuana in the vehicle. This led to a search of the vehicle in which the officer found six pounds of marijuana in the back seat.

Bradshaw was subsequently arrested for Possession of a Controlled Substance. She is currently being held at the Rankin County Jail pending her initial appearance in Brandon Municipal Court on a $50,000 bond.

Ha! Eureka, know it well. This is where the women braid their armpits. She has been working hard in the marijuana fields, and her photo is more validation of "reefer madness."

6# is probably what she smokes in 2-4 weeks.

oh my goodness charolette. there are alot of states, counties, and cities between here and eureka california. i hate to tell you this but you picked the worst possible one to get caught in. no matter what , when they bring you in front on judge mcdaniel, dont say anything like " but this is legal in california", " in california they treat people with more respect", or " this is not the right way to prosecute someone, they dont do it this way in california", or god forbid "you need to do things here like they do in california".

There's nothing more weird than seeing cops brag about finding a plant.

I can't wait until we can move on from busting people for buying, transporting, and smoking a plant.

Also, I wish you could've covered Kenny Stokes "Felons is gettin' Firearms" Press Conference at the Federal Courthouse yesterday. The local media didn't focus on Kenny's antics as much as you would've, KF.

Ahhhh, the pothead brigade is out in full force. One note to clear things up, it is still illegal here in MS whether you agree with it or not. If you don't like, it, move to somewhere it is not illegal. Just like illegal aliens, they are still here illegally until its legal.

Serious question. Do any other LEO agencies or DA offices sent out press releases like Rankin/Madison SOs and police agencies do, and like Madison/Rankin DA office does? Or do others do so, but I just don't see them?

Kingfish said...

Yes. JPD sends them out. HCSO does but refuses to send them to me and has since the first day Victor Mason became Sheriff. Clinton and DPS send them out as well. Some, such as Richland, post them on their FB pages.

Sheriff Bailey once told me that it cuts down by half the number of calls he receives from reporters. The difference between this website and the "legitimate media" (according to Jim Hood) is that I flat out tell you they are press releases. The "legitimate media" often passes them off as their own or rewrites a few sentences so as to make it appear as their own work but usually don't give credit to the agency providing the press release.

@9:31AM and @9:31 AM - Opium is a plant. Heroin comes from a plant...

Eureka is in Humboldt County, California. The women of Eureka and those parts are known as "Humboldt Honeys."

Some of them could star in Reefer Madness II, the sequel.

Booze comes from fermented plants too. Tobacco leaf is from a plant. Both of them kill people every single day. Yet they are taxed and legal. What's your point?

Alcohol prohibition should've been our only lesson that prohibition doesn't work. If society is ill with legal intoxicants, it will still be ill with illegal intoxicants.

America's problems are social and spiritual. This country is sick and dying of preventable cancer. Doesn't have anything to do with chemistry.

Looks like they caught the big fish in the drug game. I’m expecting Trumptards to declare victory on the war on drugs after this major player is taken off the streets. Mississippi’s citizens can once again leave their doors unlocked and sleep easy as the criminal element has been removed. USA! USA!

As soon as marijuana gets legalized, it will no longer be cool. The thrill will belong to something else. Then we'll see grandmas smuggling LSD rather than weed.

Anonymous said...

As already stated by 10:52 A M, it is ILLEGAL in Mississippi. That is the law and until it is changed it is the sworn duty of law enforcement to enforce it. If that doesn’t suit you, I-20 goes east and west and I-55 and I-59 go north and South. Feel free to leave on either of them.
Good job Brandon P.D.

12:49, close but no cigar. Smoking pot will always be cool. But when it is legal, it will no longer have to be "smuggled". All this shooting and crime is tied back to the fact that we have made it illegal and thus created this enormous black market. The demand is there now and will be there when it is legal. But we'll be making millions in tax income as opposed to spending millions on incarcerating folks like this woman.

Same for LSD.

Have you been to Denver in the last year? It's very nice to be able to enjoy top grade pot legally. And I can't think of a more beautiful place to enjoy that Rocky Mountain High.

Marijuana really is a cash crop. Mississippi won't be the first, but we don't have to be the last to get in on the industry.

Anonymous said...

If you want to legalize something that is harmless, and arguably the oldest profession, legalize prostitution.

Millions of dollars are wasted enforcing these puritan laws. The argument that it is tied to "organized crime" and "white slavery" is only true because it is....wait for it...ILLEGAL.

Legalize it, tax it, regulate it, whatever. It is analogous to the prohibition of alcohol.

Use Germany as a model, or Amsterdam. "Red light districts" work.

If you want to smoke pot in the privacy of your home - go for it, but don't drive, and don't let your kids have access to your reefer. Just remember, you are setting an example for your youngsters. Monkey see, and all...

@1:35, what a ridiculously false statement. Cops don’t swear an oath to uphold marijuana laws. They have extremely wide discretion to enforce laws as they choose and so do prosecutors for that matter.

"If you want to smoke pot in the privacy of your home"

The biggest problem with this is someone will get the munchies & drive to the Stop & Go risking getting in a, AUTO ACCIDENT, harming innocent driver.

..."Alcohol prohibition should've been our only lesson that prohibition doesn't work.".....
The real lesson here is the NO law, including prohibition never works when law enforcement officers are on the payroll and makes sure prohibition doesn't work.

3:40, you also have to think that they could just go on a killing rampage out of the blue like reefer madness warned us about. It’s really scary to think what the public could do with a little freedom.

Anonymous said...

@ 9:25 LOL! At the very least she could have bypassed Rankin county. I don't drink or smoke pot or anything of the sort but even I get nervous driving through there. I might have a malfunctioning brake light or went a day past the day my drivers licence needed to be renewed. They certainly don't discriminate if you're poor. They just pile those fines on as much as possible and if they can find something to run you in for that's even better. I despise Rankin county. Lived there 15 years and waved at all the people moving in on my way out and thought good luck to ya because if you're not related to some of these hillbillies in charge you are probably going to need it.

Marijuana can grow on the inner edge of your property if a bird drops seed. If a narcotics task force helicopter detected your innocuous grow-op, you could lose your property.

You simply cannot effectively outlaw God's creations. And you can't stop the human desire to enjoy an altered state and have a good time.

I'm ready for a direct vote on complete decriminalization and authorization of recreational dispensaries and legal homegrown. We've got the lotto, time for legal cannabis and hash.

What are we holding out for? Can't even stop gays from getting married in Mississippi anymore.

it takes a lot of pot to think that marijuana would be a value-add to this country. it would be the equivalent of the gov't mandating that everyone take a 2 hour siesta everyday at noon. unless people are only going to use some type of stimulating strain of marijuana, it's just not going to be the pie in the sky everyone wants, folks.

I would hit that.

I know right. Just like all those unproductive people who pour scotch in their morning coffee or have a bloody Mary at brunch. And the others who take a double Remy at lunch.

You know, the ones that work under domes surrounded by columns and marble.

You cannot seriously argue against pot when liquor is so destructive and freely available.
Everyone a politician or celebrity screws up they blame the booze and go to outpatient rehab.

If the cannabis industry adds $50 million to the state economy and $5+ million in additional tax revenue, then tell me what is more negative about it than alcohol and tobacco?

It doesn't have to be a billion dollar industry to be positive for the economy.

We know that the biggest detractors are law enforcement. It has already been a cash crop for RCSO due to civil asset forfeiture of all the cash and vehicles on I-20. If the cash and dope aren't moving back and forth on I-20 then it is hard to justify the need or expense of the interdiction task force.

A Few of the 'roided up little manlets at the sheriff's office might have to get a real job.

Anyone who is a pot advocate hurts their cause and sounds foolish on at least a couple of counts:

1) "it will stop all this criminal activity argument". Criminals will deal in whatever they need to deal in to make money. See cocaine (and numerous other drugs), illegal guns, etc. That isn't changing. Ending alcohol prohibition didn't eliminate associated gangs and criminal activity and this won't either.

2) When your only argument is to compare it to something else that is destructive that is legal.

As with any sales job your best bet is to talk about the benefits of whatever you are advocating. If you can't find/articulate those benefits then you likely won't get any support from people who aren't already on your side.

When the RCSO raid Northwest Rankin and the Robin hood Lake area we will know they are serious about the drug war. Everything else is just a prosperity grab.

@9:39 AM

When you try to rationalize the criminalization of cannabis by the negative affects of abuse, you leave yourself open to the comparison of the negative affects of the abuse of intoxicants that are currently legal.

I'm not advocating that Marijuana is better than liquor. I am rebutting the argument that it is somehow more harmful than the long list of currently legal narcotics and intoxicants.

You need to learn to define the difference between consumption and abuse. And also look up the definition of a strawman argument.

Anonymous said...

So, 10:16, you cannot articulate the positives of MJ legalization? I don't understand why that is so hard to do for so many who advocate for it. My two points are completely valid, as is my advice to advocate for the positives of legalization if you want it legal, because it mostly sounds like "we like getting stoned, and don't want to pay a legal price for doing so" and that DOES NOT move people to your side.

I completely understand what a straw man argument is, which you clearly do not:

"A straw man is a form of argument and an informal fallacy based on giving the impression of refuting an opponent's argument, while actually refuting an argument that was not presented by that opponent. One who engages in this fallacy is said to be "attacking a straw man.""

I simply told you what hurts your argument and how to make a better argument for it, which you did not do. If you can articulate the benefits, then please do...

We can’t have a thoughtful conversation about the positives of Marijuana without discussing how we as a society got here in the first place.

Decades of government sponsored brainwashing has most of society scared to even think there may be some positives about it, especially for the older folks. We can’t even acknowledge that there is an innate desire to become inebriated every so often as it’s part of the human condition without being labeled pro-addiction by some well meaning turd that runs your local AA group.

Our society is so brainwashed on a convuluted free market ideology that it set back and let a legal drug cartel ruin families ILLEGALLY via synythesized opioids.
It took a lot of complicity from a lot of people, including doctors, to let it go on this long; however, crickets seem to chirp when one mentions actually punishing the actual companies that perpetuated this crime.

You can call this a straw man, or veering off topic, but when it comes to the overall discussion about drugs legal or illegal, look no further than the current quagmire we find ourselves in as a society as to why absolute fear and terror drive the reactions of most into the denial of positive considerations that may destroy their perfect illusions of safety.

Back before clean water sources/treatment was a thing, beer was actually more healthy and less likely to kill you than water.

Maybe alcohol is more accepted because at one time it was a healthy alternative?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.
