A Linn man and a Rosebud woman remain in custody in Osage County, arrested Saturday on outstanding warrants and new felonies following a pursuit after a Gasconade County Sheriff’s deputy attempted to stop the motorcycle they were riding on near Bay.
Gasconade County Sheriff Scott Eiler reports one of his deputies attempted a traffic stop of a motorcycle driven by Nathan B. Wilson for traffic violation on the evening of May 27. Wilson fled the stop near the intersection of Route K and Route P and U.S. 50 near the Bay community.
“The motorcycle fled from the deputy traveling south on Highway P,” according to a press release from Eiler. “While the motorcycle was fleeing, the passenger started tossing suspected narcotics and drug paraphernalia. The pursuit continued onto county roads where the motorcycle eventually tried driving through a farm field on Brick Church Road. At this time, the motorcycle stopped and the deputy was able to take the two occupants into custody.”
Responding to the pursuit, Eiler noted several deputies, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, and the county’s K9 unit, Xena, conducted an extensive search along Route P and located approximately 46 grams of suspected methamphetamine and items consistent with distribution of narcotics.
Wilson of Linn was arrested on an outstanding Osage County arrest warrant and his passenger, identified as Brandy Wright, of Rosebud, was arrested on four outstanding warrants. Wilson and Wright were both transported to the Osage County Jail in Linn pending further charges.
On Sunday, Associate Circuit Judge Ada Brehe-Kruger issued new felony charges against both of them.
Wright was charged with the class C felony alleging delivery of a controlled substance, an E felony for resisting arrest during commission of a felony, and the class D misdemeanor for unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
Wilson faces a class E felony count alleging resisting arrest during commission of a felony, a class B misdemeanor for failure to register a motor vehicle, and a class D misdemeanor for operating a motorcycle when his driver’s license was not valid for such operation.
Both remained in custody Tuesday afternoon. Bond for each was set at $35,000 cash or surety.
Wright had warrants out for her arrest on 2018 and 2019 Osage County cases. One had a $150 cash or surety bond.
Wilson was wanted on an Osage warrant from a 2018 case involving a conviction for vehicle tampering where he received a seven-year prison term with execution of the sentence being suspended. A separate cash bond of $4,901 was requested with the warrant alleging failure to appear in court.
Wilson and Wright were both scheduled to be arraigned at 9 a.m. today (Wednesday) before Brehe-Krueger in Gasconade County associate circuit court.
“I want to thank Missouri State Highway Patrol and deputies of the Gasconade County for their hard work and dedication to keep Gasconade County a safe place to raise your family,” said Eiler in his release.
