A former college baseball player pled guilty to federal drug charges earlier this week, after DEA agents raided his house and seized over $2 million in cash, including a staggering $1.7 million on his family's farm.
That former player is 27-year-old Bradley Lewis Felder, who played at both the Citadel and Clemson from 2008 to 2012. Here are some details of this entire, sordid saga, via the Charlotte Observer:
U.S. District Judge Terry L. Wooten accepted guilty pleas from Bradley Lewis Felder, 27, and Everette "Rhett" Carter Berry, 28, on charges, including conspiracy to possess and intent to distribute and to distribute a quantity of 3,4-Methylenedioxyethylcathinone Hydrochloride (commonly known as "molly") and at least 50 kilograms of marijuana
Wooten will sentence them at a later date.
According to the Charlotte Observer, DEA agents began investigating Felder, Berry and others in 2013 for importing both marijuana and molly, shipping them to several properties in South Carolina owned by Felder. When Felder was arrested last August, he had over $1,400 in cash, several cell phones, a gun, and two watches which are valued at over $100,000.
However, all that pales in comparison to what was found at Felder's family farm in February.
Pictures on the cellphones showed stacks of money in bundles and plastic containers. In February, Felder led agents to his family's farm in Bowman, where they unearthed a bag containing $1,768,031.
If convicted, the pair could face 20 years in prison, and fines of upwards of $1 million.
