Today is the final day of Yavapai Silent Witness’ “Catch 22” program. Today we focus on 29-year-old Jonathon Robert Bracher from Prescott Valley. Back on November 21st, 2017, Bracher was moving out of a Prescott Valley home and stole two guns on his way out. He is a convicted felon and is prohibited from possessing a firearm. Then on December 7th of 2017, Yavapai County Sheriff’s officials say a deputy noticed a car driving slowly north on I-17 in Black Canyon City so he tried to stop it. When the deputy ran a check on the car he found it was owned by Bracher and there was a missing person’s report out on him. The car pulled away from the deputy and started going south on northbound I-17. The deputy didn’t follow for safety reasons. Moments later, DPS located the car in the area of Bumble Bee Road and indicated the driver had fled after backing into a guardrail. Bracher was arrested in Phoenix and booked on drugs and weapons charges, along with unlawful flight in 2019. He was released on bond and has since violated his release conditions. Bracher is six-foot-two and 170 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes with tattoos on the side and back of this neck. A 500-dollar reward is being offered for information leading to his arrest. If anyone has seen Bracher, call Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232 or submit a tip online at yavapaisw.com.
