Belle Rive Man Brought Back to Wayne County from Western Kentucky to Face Felony Charges

FAIRFIELD – Correctional Officers with the Wayne County Jail traveled to Hickman, Kentucky recently to extradite a 58-year-old Belle Rive man back to Illinois. 

Bradley Gammon was wanted on a no bond, nationwide warrant out of Wayne County for failing to appear on numerous felony charges. 

He was also wanted out of Jefferson County for failing to appear for a July jury trial on a Class X felony charge of Delivery of Methamphetamine.

Gammon was free on $10,000 cash bond in the 2020 Jefferson County case when he was arrested on the Wayne County charges. 

He was subsequently released from Wayne County custody after posting $5,000 cash bond on charges of Driving while License Revoked and Aggravated Fleeing Police.

Gammon was on parole from the Illinois Department of Corrections at the time of a traffic stop in Mt. Vernon that led to his arrest on the meth delivery charge.

He was released to parole in November 2019 after pleading guilty in 2017 to a Class 3 felony charge of possession of meth. He served two years of a five-year sentence.

An inspection of the vehicle Gammon was driving at the time of his Mt. Vernon arrest reportedly revealed 65 grams of methamphetamine, a digital scale, drug paraphernalia, and currency.
