Woman Caught With Pills During Traffic Stop

Suspect had a child on her lap with no seatbelt on when a car she's in is pulled over early Sunday morning.

A 21-year-old Milwaukee woman is facing charges after she was caught in a car in Menomonee Falls with no seat belt on, a child on her lap, no ID card and pills in her pocket.

Marquasha D. Bradford was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court Monday with one count of possession of a narcotic drug and one count of possession of an illegally obtained prescription drug. If convicted, she faces up to four years in prison and $10,500 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint:

Bradford was in a car at 2:05 a.m. Sunday when a Menomonee Falls police officer spotted it speeding near Roosevelt Drive and Appleton Avenue and pulled it over. When the officer approached the car, he found Bradford with a child on her lap, another adult in the car and two more children.

Bradford wasn’t wearing her seatbelt and told the officer she lost her ID card. She then gave him a different middle initial for her name, which the officer later discovered, because she was afraid there was a warrant out for her arrest.

The officer then searched here were he found four prescription pills, including Oxycodone. Bradford told the officer she didn’t have a prescription for the pills, but got them from a friend because she is suffering from back pain in her back and around her abdomen.

Bradford is currently free on a $2,500 signature bond while awaiting trial.
