Wanted Missouri Man Arrested in Gulf Shores for Drug and Credit Card Crimes | New


A man wanted for multiple crimes in Missouri was arrested in Gulf Shores on Sunday, October 24, 2021. He now faces multiple drug trafficking charges here. He and an acquaintance were pulled over in the parking lot of a condo on West Lagoon Avenue after police received a call about suspicious activity.

Jessica Erin Berger, 29, and Ryan Kenneth Braswell, 29, both from Missouri, face multiple drug charges after Gulf Shores police say they found methamphetamine, heroin, mushrooms and marijuana on them. When the police released Braswell’s name, they found many more.

“He had several terms in Missouri. I know of a felony arrest warrant… I think he failed to register as a sex offender, ”said Lt. Jason Woodruff of the Gulf Shores Police Department.

Missouri court records show Braswell was convicted in 2011 and sentenced to seven years for the attempted sexual assault on a 12-year-old girl. The best police can tell, they were here on vacation and had booked an apartment they planned to check in on Sunday afternoon. It was in the same parking lot where they were going to stay that police said they caught them with a variety of illegal drugs.

“They were coming to stay in this apartment, and I don’t know if they were right here early. It’s a bit of a typical thing these days. Someone will be right in town early before they can save the type deal, ”Woodruff said.

The bust was in the middle of the afternoon and caught the eye of Ottis Fairbanks, who was passing through West Lagoon Ave. when he noticed all the activity.

“All of a sudden we see a group of police cars sitting in the parking lot,” recalls Fairbanks. “We looked over there and we could see four or five police cars, then the trunk of a car lifted up, and it was under the drive-in of a condo and it looked like the police was crossing the automobile. “

The police not only found drugs, but also credit cards that did not belong to the couple. Investigators said the suspects likely drew attention to themselves that they normally would not have had during the busiest times of the year.

“I think it probably has a lot to do with it. This time of year is a good time to be here, but it’s not crowded in town so someone is standing out, which isn’t good, ”said Woodruff.

Police also found a toy gun and live ammunition in the vehicle. Braswell is a convicted felon, so he could face additional charges for ammunition. Because he is also a fugitive from justice, Ryan Braswell is currently unrelated. Jessica Berger has a bond of $ 15,500.
