A third person with ties to a motorcycle gang has been arrested, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies took into custody 29-year-old Ryan Alan St. Clair of DeLand, who was arrested for firearms and drug-related violations, deputies said.
St. Clair is affiliated with the Pagan’s motorcycle gang.
St. Clair was charged with carrying a concealed weapon without a license, possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.
A deputy responded to the Bahia Honda Bridge at approximately 7 a.m. regarding a call of a suspicious person under the bridge.
St. Clair was found with two knives visible on his hip. St. Clair was wearing a Pagan’s sweatshirt and ball cap, but had no motorcycle and was alone. St. Clair stated he had an argument with his girlfriend and slept there overnight.
The following were found in St. Clair’s possession following a search: Two knives, a 9mm handgun, a stun gun, two grams of cocaine, four grams of a crystal-like white powder that St. Clair identified as “Molly,” and eight grams of marijuana.
St. Clair was taken to jail.
