Mayor accused of using dead people's IDs

Mayor accused of using dead people's IDs

The mayor of Davenport, Florida was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of using a dead woman's handicapped placard so she could park in handicapped spots at City Hall, according to officials with the Polk County Sheriff's Office.

Davenport is a small city located in central Florida. WPBF reported that she had been booked and released on a $2,250 bond.

During the investigation, deputies said they spotted Bradley parking in one of the designated handicapped spots, placing the placard on her mirror before leaving her auto, and then removing the placard again once she returned to her vehicle.

Police were able to determine from photos taken from the property handicap placard placed on Bradley's vehicle displayed an expiration date of "10-18", according to the sheriff's office.

She placed the placard on her mirror before exiting the auto and then removed it upon returning before she drove away, authorities said.

Deputies said they began investigating Teresa Bradley, 60, after a tipster told them in November that Bradley was parking in handicapped spaces, even though she didn't have a handicapped placard.

Deputies determined the placard showed an expiration date of 10-18, when its true expiration date was October 30, 2013 and that it had been issued to a Davenport woman who died in August 2012.

A search warrant was issued, deputies say, and found the two placards belonging to two different people.

"We expect our elected officials to set the proper example", Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said, according to ABC Action News.

They said the video also showed her taking a large wheeled briefcase out of her trunk and walking into City Hall without assistance.

Bradley could not be reached for comment.
