34-year-old hid under mattress, was apprehended

The Barry County Sheriff's Office took a name off its Most Wanted list with an arrest in Seligman on Oct. 28.

Bradley Hufford Jr., 34, of Seligman, is facing a charge of possession of a controlled substance, a class C felony, relating to his Tuesday arrest. He was on the Sheriff Office's Most Wanted list for a separate possession of a controlled substance charge. Hufford is being held in the county jail on a $10,000 bond.

According to a report by Clint Danforth, Southwest Missouri Drug Task Force officer, he and deputies went to a home where they had seen Hufford in the window.

After being granted consent to enter the home, Danforth went into the bedroom to locate Hufford.

"As I'm walking into the bedroom, I noticed the right side of the bed was a lot higher than the left side," Danforth said in the report. "I walked over to the right side of the bed and identified Bradley under the mattress."

Danforth said he asked Huffman to come out from under the mattress, and upon his doing so, Danforth noticed a large envelope by Huffman's head that allegedly contained a small baggie with a white substance, a glass pipe with residue and a plastic tube with a white substance inside it. The substances tested positive for methamphetamine.

Hufford is set to appear for a disposition hearing on Nov. 20 at 8 a.m., in front of Associate Circuit Judge Victor Head.
