The sheriff’s office said Bradley was videotaped by a surveillance camera detectives installed outside City Hall and captured her parking in the disabled spot recently and using a placard.

The video captured Bradley “exiting the video with no assistance, removing a large wheeled brief/suitcase from the trunk and walking into the City Hall meeting without assistance,” deputies wrote in the press release.

Upon further investigation, deputies focused in on the placard Bradley was using and discovered it belonged to a woman from Davenport who died in 2012. The placard expired in 2013 but the mayor’s read 2018, leading investigators to believe Bradley was forging the placards, police said.
