The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office arrested an Easley man over the weekend on multiple charges, including one count of Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon.

34 year old Michael Troy Bradshaw has also been charged by the Sheriff’s Office with two counts of Petit Larceny, and one count each of Receiving Stolen Goods, Possession of a Stolen Vehicle and Giving False Information in relation to the initial incident that occurred Saturday.

 Bradshaw also had arrest warrants from the Seneca Police Department on  one count each of Grand Larceny and Breach of Trust with Fraudulent  Intent.

 Holds have also been placed on Bradshaw by the Easley Police Department  and the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office.

 Arrest warrants lists Bradshaw’s address as Robert P. Jeanes Road while the  Detention Center lists his address as Heavens Way.

 A deputy from the Uniform Patrol Division responded to an address on Rick Lane near Seneca late Saturday morning in regards to reports of a suspicious vehicle.  The tag on the vehicle was reported  stolen out of Pickens County.

 The deputy made contact with a male that was working on the vehicle, which was a 2004 black GMC Envoy.  After asking for the man’s identification, the man provided him with what turned out to  be false identification.

 Based upon the facts that the deputy discovered during the early part of the investigation, the deputy placed the man in handcuffs for officer safety reasons.  The man spoke to a female passenger in the  vehicle, later identified as 25 year old Brooke Amanda Smith of Jill Drive in Liberty, in order to obtain the vehicles registration.

As this process continued, the man was able to run from the deputy after ignoring officer commands.  The man evaded capture from the deputy and other responding units.

The deputy returned to the scene and spoke with the female, Smith.  A search of the vehicle by the deputy produced a handgun.  The deputy also was informed by dispatch that the GMC Envoy was stolen. Also, Smith had taken some bags to a tree line near the incident location where a quantity of narcotics was discovered. 

Smith was taken to the Detention Center and booked in around 3:52pm on Saturday and charged with Possession of Methamphetamine.  She was released from the Detention Center yesterday on a $5,000.00 personal recognizance bond.

On Sunday, a deputy from the Uniform Patrol Division responded to a business on Highway 123 at Old Clemson Highway in regards to reports that the man that ran from deputies was reportedly seen there.  Deputies later located the man, identified as Bradshaw, on Lawrence Bridge Road.  The suspect was taken into custody and transported to the Oconee County Detention Center.

Based upon evidence discovered as a result of the initial investigation, Bradshaw has also been charged with one count each of Malicious Injury to Personal Property and Possession of a Stolen Vehicle in regards to reports of a moped that was reported stolen early Saturday morning that was taken from an address on Harris Court near Seneca.

The moped that was reported stolen was located at an address on Orchard Lane near Seneca.  Evidence discovered by deputies confirmed that Bradshaw was in possession of the stolen moped and had caused damage to the moped.

Also according to arrest warrants, deputies learned that the 2004 GMC Envoy from the original incident was reported stolen out of Pickens County. 

As of 4:30pm today, Bradshaw remains in custody at the Detention Center on a combined $60,265.00 surety bond on all charges from the Sheriff’s Office and the Seneca Police Department.
