Capitol Police officer arrested at Twin River LINCOLN – Last Thursday, Nov. 7, a member of the Rhode Island Capitol Police was arrested at Twin River Casino in Lincoln for larceny over $1,500. Members of the R.I. State Police Gaming Enforcement Unit assigned to the casino arrested David J. Bradley, 59, of North Providence, last week as the result of an investi- gation into an incident that occurred at the casino on Nov. 1. According to state police, the investigation revealed that a casino patron had dropped his wallet, which contained $1,700 in cash, on the floor of the Blackstone Bar inside the establishment. Bradley was allegedly observed grabbing the wallet and then leav- ing the casino. Twin River Security stopped him in the parking lot and found the wallet. All of the events were captured on camera. Bradley was processed at the State Police Lincoln Barracks, arraigned before the Hon. Judge Elaine Bucci at the 3rd District Court and released on $5,000 personal recog- nizance. His next court date is scheduled for February 6, 2020. Bradley has been a Capitol Police Officer for approximately eight years. A person convicted of larceny over $1,500 may be subject to imprisonment for not more than three years or by a fine of not more than $1,500, or both.
