Modelling spatial structures is always a bit more diffult that just calling
glmer() regardless of the way you go. Here is an example of how your may
fit your data using GAMMs in a Bayesian framework:

fit <- brm(x ~ Stratum + t2(Lat, Lon) + (1|Loc),
                data = df, family = negbinomial())
