Man Briefly in St. Louis Co. Police Custody Dies

JENNINGS, Mo. (KMOX) — A man briefly in St. Louis County Police custody has died.

Sgt. Shawn McGuire says officers from the county’s Bureau of Tactical Operations and the Bureau of Drug Enforcement executed a narcotics search warrant in the 1900 block of Grape Avenue in Jennings early Monday morning, shortly after 6.

The suspect, 44-year-old Dwight Bradley, cooperated and was arrested.

Bradley collapsed a few minutes later and started having what police say looked like a seizure. He was taken out of handcuffs and given first aid plus two doses of Narcan. He was revived, but died at the hospital shortly after 9. An autopsy is underway.

Officers recovered a gun, three different powdered substances, a bag of pills and more than $30,000 cash.

McGuire says there is no body camera or dash cam footage available from the incident.

During the search, a 3-year-old drug sniffing dog found an open bag and the substance got into his system. He’ll spend the night in an animal hospital to be monitored for adverse effects.
