A 35-year-old Jefferson man who was found with a large amount of methamphetamine, firearms and cash during a search of a rural Bayard house in July was sentenced last week to up to 10 years in prison.

Charles “Charlie” Adam Bradshaw already was wanted for parole violations when officers searched the house in the 1200 block of Kopeck Avenue on July 14 and found him hiding in a bedroom closet, according to court records.

“Bradshaw is clearly a substantial methamphetamine dealer by Guthrie County standards,” a criminal complaint filed in district court said. “He is a clear and present danger to the public due to his lengthy flight from his arrest warrants, his past criminal history, his resistive behavior, the fact that over an ounce of methamphetamine was discovered in the bedroom he was found hiding in and the presence of loaded firearms in the same bedroom. Also, children were located in the residence at the time of his arrest.”

Officers found a loaded handgun and a rifle in the bedroom, which had a monitor that displayed video from surveillance cameras on the outside of the house.

Bradshaw was charged with multiple drug and weapons felonies, the most serious of which was punishable by up to 25 years in prison. He pleaded guilty to three charges and was sentenced to up to 10 years.

Greene County Sheriff Jack Williams told the Times Herald this week that Bradshaw was suspected of dealing meth in Greene County as well.

Charlie Bradshaw was profiled on Page 1 of the Jefferson Herald in 2017 when he joined his father’s barbershop, Chuck’s Barber Shop, just off the Square. It was the first time in a generation that Jefferson had a two-chair barbershop.

His father, Chuck Bradshaw II, declined to comment for this article.
