3 children found in man’s car after home break-in, crash

COLUMBIA, Mo. – Authorities say three children were found in a Columbia man’s car after he broke into a home, crashed his car and kicked at arresting officers.

The Columbia Missourian reports that 28-year-old Adrian Bradshaw was charged Thursday with first-degree burglary and five other felonies. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.

Charging documents say that during the break-in, he got into an altercation with someone in the home. Authorities say he then fled, hitting two mailboxes before going off the side of a road and crashing into a tree.

After he was taken into custody, officers found the three children in his car, along with methamphetamine and a loaded handgun. A woman in the passenger seat told authorities that Bradshaw forced her to carry 2 grams of cocaine.
