OAKLAND, Miss. (WTVA) - A Yalobusha County man is expected to plead guilty next month in connection to the December 2017 robbery of an Oakland, Mississippi, bank.

Bradford was identified as a possible suspect in the December 15 armed robbery of the BancorpSouth branch in Oakland.
A search of his vehicle on December 19 turned up a weapon with similar characteristics to the weapon used in the robbery.
He is also indicted on possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The charges could be enhanced due to federal rules on use of a firearm in the commission of a violent crime.
He is being held without bond pending trail.
A change of plea hearing has been scheduled for June 7 in U.S. District Court in Oxford.
