At approximately 2:45 PM, CST, investigators with the US Marshal’s service located escaped inmate, Phillip Shane Bradford. Bradford was in the company of his girlfriend, Khara Dubose. Both Bradford and Dubose were taken into custody and will be booked into the Maricopa County Jail in Arizona. Dubose is being held on current drug charges here in Alabama, however, Jefferson County Sheriff’s detectives will be seeking additional charges against her for assisting Bradford.
The US Marshal’s Gulf Coast Regional Task Force developed information that Bradford was in the Phoenix area and set up surveillance on the suspected location. Bradford and Dubose were seen walking down the street with another couple, who is thought to have been unaware of Bradford’s escape. Bradford and Dubose were arrested with no injuries. The two will go before a judge for an extradition hearing. Should they waive extradition, they will be transported back to Jefferson County to face charges.
Multiple agencies participated in the search and helped to bring Bradford into custody. The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the US Marshal’s Service, The Gulf Coast Regional Federal Task Force, North Alabama US Marshal’s Service, Arizona US Marshal’s Service, Texas US Marshal’s Service, Cullman County Sheriff’s Office and the City of Cullman Police Department.
