Warrant Arrests

Marissa Bowers

Marissa Bowers- On Jan. 6, Marissa Bowers, 38, Ash Grove, was arrested by a St. Clair County deputy after being sentenced in court on a class D felony possession of a controlled substance. Bowers was sentenced to 10 years in the Missouri Department of Corrections.

The original arrest comes after a St. Clair County deputy was at the Dollar General Store in Lowry City in May of 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.

During their conversation, Bowers did admit to driving to the store. Bowers admitted to the possibility of a methamphetamine pipe in the vehicle. A K9 was called to the scene. During an exterior sniff test of the vehicle, the K9 alerted to the presence of narcotics. During a search of the vehicle two straws with a white residue were located. One of the straws field tested positive for methamphetamine. During a further search multiple items of drug paraphernalia were found.

Sallie Welch

Sallie Welch- On Jan. 4, Sallie Welch, 49, Collins, was arrested on a St. Clair County warrant charging her with a class A misdemeanor violation of order of protection for an adult. Bond is set at $2,500 cash or surety.

The arrest comes after St. Clair County deputies were dispatched to a residence on SE 401 Road in reference to a domestic disturbance. Upon arrival, the deputies could not make contact with any of the residence. When the deputies were getting ready to leave, the male party pulled into the driveway. The deputies made contact with him and asked where Welch was. The male party stated she was in the house. The deputies were informed by dispatch that Welch had an active warrant. The male party opened the residence and the deputies took Welch into custody without any incident.
