Suspect in Shooting Held on Drug Charges

A 29-year old Jefferson City man is being held on drug charges in Camden County, and Chad T. Brewer is also a suspect in the Memorial weekend shooting of a Kanas City man at Lake of the Ozarks. The Camden County Prosecutors office in a probable cause statement states that, after the fatal shooting of Vonza Watson, a 27-year-old aspiring musician and visual artist, at Lazy Gator’s on Saturday, Camden County Sheriff’s deputies saw a man matching the description of a suspect, walking away from the bar. They detained and searched the man, identified as 29-year-old Chad Brewer, and allegedly found 16 small pieces of plastic, each holding a white rock-like substance.

According to the report, the deputy believed the substance was “crack” cocaine and noted that it was packaged to make it easily distributed or sold to others. When asked what it was, Brewer allegedly stated that it was cocaine. A field test revealed that the substance was cocaine weighing approximately 5.5 grams.

Brewer was later transported to the Camden County Detention Center and was placed on a 24-hour hold. He was subsequently charged with Class C Felony Delivery Of A Controlled Substance and Class D Misdemeanor Unlawful Possession Of Drug Paraphernalia.
