Man allegedly uses Facebook for illegal sex acts and drug sales

Colonie Police have arrested David M. Bradt on Oct. 14, for allegedly using Facebook to engage in sexual activity with underage females and sell the marijuana.

Police said Bradt, 24, of Colonie used Facebook to befriend females as a means to have sex with them and sell them marijuana. Through their investigation, police identified four underage females, ages 15 and 16, had met Bradt through Facebook and engaged in the aforementioned acts but said they have conducted several more interviews, leading them to believe there are more victims.

Bradt had over 700 friends on the social networking site that he acquired through making friends with one of the girls and then requesting the girl's friends to be his friend, according to police.

Bradt has been charged with five counts of third degree rape, two counts of a third degree criminal sex act, three counts of second degree criminal sale of marijuana, all of which are felonies, and endangering the welfare of a child, according to police.

Bradt is currently in the Albany Correctional Facility with no bail. Police said more charges could possibly be filed as the investigation is still on-going

Police have asked any parents who believe their daughter has had illegal contact with Bradt to contact the Colonie Police at 783-2744."
