Sylacauga man arrested for multiple charges
By Christa Jennings
A young man from Sylacauga was arrested late last month on multiple charges, including a firearm-related charge and attempting to elude.
Sheriff Michael Howell reported that on May 31 Cpl. Rudd and Investigator Hodge were patrolling County Road 29 when they encountered a vehicle driven by an individual for whom they had warrants.
Rudd turned around and attempted to stop the vehicle. However, the vehicle fled and eventually stopped at a residence.
A male got out of the vehicle and fled on foot. A gun with an altered serial number and a glass pipe were found inside the vehicle.
As previously reported, the female in the vehicle, 23-year-old Ashley Kilgore, was arrested at the time. The investigation also led to warrants being issued for 19-year-old Bradlee Gooden of Sylacauga.
On June 24, Gooden was arrested on the charges of possession of an altered firearm, possession of drug paraphernalia and attempting to elude law enforcement. Howell said that Gooden was also arrested for numerous warrants for failure to appear.
Gooden’s total bond was set at $14,500, and he has since been released on bond to await trial.
