RISP: Member of Capitol Police arrested for larceny at Twin River Casino

Blackstone Valley

LINCOLN, R.I. (WPRI) — Rhode Island State Police says members of the Gaming Enforcement Unit arrested a Capitol Police Officer in connection with a larceny at Twin River Casino.

Investigators say on November 1, a person dropped their wallet, containing $1,700, on the ground while at the Blackstone Bar inside the casino.

Police said the suspect, later identified as David Bradley, 59, of North, Providence, was seen picking up the wallet, then leaving the casino.

Bradley was then stopped in the casino parking lot by security and they found the wallet. Police said the entire incident was captured on surveillance video.

Bradley was arrested on November 7 on an affidavit/arrest warrant for larceny over $1,500. He was arraigned at Kent County District Court and released on $5,000 personal recognizance. He is expected back in court in February.

According to a news release from state police, Bradley has been an officer with the Rhode Island Capitol Police for approximately eight years.

Eyewitness News reached out to Capitol Police Chief Joseph Little, Jr., who released this statement on the arrest:

Officer Bradley has been on the job since around 2011. He is currently on IOD status (for about a year and a half) and it is my understanding that he had applied for a pension. I am aware of the arrest but I no further comment beyond that because it involves a personnel issue in addition to the criminal charge.
