Man With Pending Burglary And Theft Cases Arrested On Drug Charge

A man already accused of felony burglary and motor vehicle theft has now been arrested on a felony drug charge. According to a criminal complaint filed by the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office, 30-year-old Bradley James Barringer, who has reported addresses in Brayton and Rockwell City, was taken into custody Monday and charged with a controlled substance violation, a class D felony. The charge stems from an arrest on Nov. 8, 2018, in which less than five grams of methamphetamine was found in his possession. In addition to the drug charge, Barringer has pending cases in both Carroll and Webster Counties. He faces second-degree burglary and second-degree theft charges for allegedly breaking into a Lidderdale home on Nov. 6 and first-degree theft and operating a motor vehicle without owner’s consent for stealing a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado and taking nearly $1,200 from the truck. Combined, Barringer now faces up to 32 years in prison and $40,500 in fines. He remains in custody at the Carroll County jail on a $5,000 bond and is scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing on Thursday, Jan. 17 at the Carroll County Courthouse.
