A Shreveport man arrested in Broadmoor in February 2018 with methamphetamine was convicted of possession of the illegal drug Tuesday, April 9, 2019, in Caddo District Court.
Robert Bradley Brown, 36, was found guilty as charged by the two-man, four-woman jury in District Judge Roy Brun’s courtroom after less than 40 minutes’ deliberation.
The jury determined that Brown, the target of arrest warrants being executed on Leo Avenue by Caddo Parish Sheriff’s deputies on February 16, 2018, possessed under two grams of the Schedule II drug methamphetamine. According to deputies when arrested he had the drug inside a pill bottle, as well as two smoking devices and a silver digital scale.
Brown, who has convictions for possession of Scheduled IV Controlled Dangerous Substances in 2001 and 2012, felony DWI in 2013 and possession of Schedule II CDS in 2014, was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys Ross Owen and Erica Jefferson. He was defended by Richard Fisher.
When Brown returns to Judge Brun’s courtroom on May 8, 2019, he faces up to two years in prison with or without hard labor, as well as a fine of up to $5,000.
