Alejandro Cowo

Sixty-one-year-old James Bradley had a terrifying experience early on Saturday morning. Bradley was sleeping inside his house at mile twelve of the George Price Highway when he was awoken by suspicious noises between two and four o’clock that morning. When he opened his eyes, he saw a masked man trying to break into his bedroom. Bradley attempted to run out of the room, but he was stopped by another intruder. His hands and feet were bound and the masked men ransacked his home, stealing several of his belongings including a sixteen gauge shotgun. A.S.P. Alejandro Cowo shared what the investigation has unearthed so far.
