A 17-year-old charged in the theft of more than 30 guns from a Corry-area sporting goods store last month will be charged as an adult, according to state police at Corry.
Dasai K. Bradberry, whose name had not previously been released by authorities, was certified to adult criminal court by Judge Gregory Hammond of Warren County Court of Common Pleas, according to a police press release.
The charges against Bradberry result from a burglary at C & H Sports, 45490 Route 6 in Columbus Township, about 3 miles east of Corry in Warren County, on Sept. 14. At about 7 a.m., the owner of the store reported to police that someone entered via a window air conditioning unit and took 32 firearms from a display case.
Bradberry was identified through evidence collected at the scene by the state police criminal investigation unit, working in conjunction with the Jamestown (New York) Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, according to police.
Bradberry was transported from Chautauqua County jail in Mayville, New York, where he was initially taken into custody, to Warren County on Sept. 23. He faces felony charges of burglary, criminal conspiracy to commit burglary, criminal conspiracy to commit theft by unlawful taking, 32 counts of theft by unlawful taking and 32 counts of receiving stolen property. He also faces a misdemeanor count of criminal mischief and 32 misdemeanor counts of receiving stolen property.
Bradberry remains in Warren County jail in lieu of $100,000 bond.
