Police Officer’s Son Bradley Brown Was Selling THC Liquid On Snapchat Before Shooting Death, Court Docs Say – CBS Baltimore


LA PLATA, Md. (AP/WJZ) — The son of a police officer, who was found shot to death in the driveway of a home, was reportedly selling THC vape cartridges on Snapchat before his death.

Bradley Alan Brown, 17, used the social media app to arrange a meeting with Darryl Edward Freeman, 17, according to court documents obtained by news outlets. Freeman was charged as an adult with first-degree murder and other related charges in Brown’s slaying Tuesday night.

Court documents state Brown had begun selling high-potency cartridges for electronic cigarettes containing THC, the compound that gives pot its high. However, officers hadn’t found any cartridges after a search of his bedroom, home and car.

Freeman “supposedly sells marijuana”, investigators said in charging documents.

Brown and Freeman never explicitly discussed a drug sale in Snapchat messages, according to the documents. Authorities had said the shooting appeared to be drug-related.

Investigators used Brown’s phone, surveillance video and an online football recruitment for Freeman to declare him as a suspect, court documents state. Freeman had listed his phone number on the video, which investigators said was linked to his Snapchat account.

Two other teens were arrested in Brown’s murder Friday: 19-year-old Mikayle Qawwee and 16-year-old Keshawn Belasco, both from Waldorf. All three were charged with first-degree murder.

Charles County Sheriff’s officials said robbery appears to be the motive in the case.

The investigation into Brown’s shooting death has shown no evidence indicates his death is related to his father’s work in law enforcement.
