Member of home invasion group sentenced

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) — One of four people police say broke into a home in 2018 learned his sentence Monday.

Tyray Bradley Jr. was in court Monday for his sentencing hearing. Fort Wayne’s NBC previously reported he pleaded guilty to his role in the home invasion.

Bradley’s was sentenced to 20 years in prison for his role in the crime, with 12 years executed. He was given 297 days of jail credit and a no-contact order.

In August 2018, four people tied up a homeowner, stealing $500 from his wallet and taking the combination to his safe.

An investigation determined the homeowner had previous contact with another member of the group, Bradley’s girlfriend Amber Lunsford. The homeowner invited her to his home after seeing an advertisement on a now-closed website, backpage.com.

The homeowner changed his mind after Lunsford arrived and turned her away. During the robbery, Lunsford reportedly approached the victim during the robbery and stated, “If you hadn’t been rude to me, this never would have happened.”

Lunsford was previously sentenced to 12 years for her involvement in the case.
