The warrant comes after a St. Clair County deputy was at the Dollar General Store in Lowry City on May 12, 2018. He noticed the subject, Marissa Bowers, later identified by her Missouri non driver’s license, acting in a suspicious manner. Bowers exited the store and got into the driver’s seat of a vehicle and sat there for several minutes. The deputy made contact with Bowers to see if everything was alright. She stated she was waiting on a friend to pick her up. Through a records check, it showed Bowers to have a revoked license.
