  • A traffic stop at 7:43 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 16, in rural Ralls County resulted in two arrests for drug charges, after one suspect had fled on foot.
    The Ralls County Sheriff’s Department provided the following report: A deputy stopped a vehicle on northbound U.S. 61 near Oceanwave Road for a traffic violation.
    While the deputy was confirming the driver and passenger identifications and checking for outstanding warrants, the passenger fled the area on foot.
    The deputy requested additional manpower, along with the Missouri State Highway Patrol. As a result, a perimeter was established around the area and a request for a K-9 patrol dog was made to Monroe City Police Department.
    When the Monroe City officer and K-9 dog arrived at the scene, a tracking search was incited for the suspect.
    This resulted in the arrest of Jewel Brawley, 32, of Vandalia, Mo., who was found hidden in a wooded area within the search perimeter.
    Brawley was processed and lodged in the Pike County Jail on an active civil warrant for his arrest. On Tuesday, Feb. 18, the matter had been referred to the Ralls County prosecutor’s office for charges.
    The driver of the vehicle, Dustin Dye, 29, of Hannibal, Mo., was also arrested, for driving while revoked and possession of drug paraphernalia, and turned over to Hannibal Police Department.
