A Tyrone woman was arraigned this week by on-call judge District Magistrate Fred Miller for drug charges established following a traffic stop on an unregistered vehicle.
Stephanie Snyder, 34, of Gladys Lane, was the passenger in the vehicle at the time it was driven by Bradley Clark, 25, who had an active warrant through the Blair County Sheriff’s Office. The vehicle’s registration was cancelled in September 2019.
During investigation, it was discovered Snyder also had a warrant. Both Snyder and Clark were detained and the vehicle was searched. At that time, police found a bag containing syringes and other suspected drug paraphernalia, as well as a small amount of suspected methamphetamine, morphine pills, and small baggies. Another bag in the passenger side of the vehicle where Snyder was seated reportedly contained metal lock box and several smaller bags.
According to the filed criminal complaint, the metal lock box contained five grams of suspected methamphetamine and 40 alprazolam pills. Other items included two scales, and packaging materials typically used for distribution of illegal substances. A photo identification portraying Snyder’s photo and personal information was also in the bag.
Police determined Snyder was actively involved in distributing illegal substances and she was arrested for possession with intent to deliver. She was charged with three counts of felony manufacturing/delivery/possession with intent, three counts of misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance, and misdemeanor use/possession of drug paraphernalia.
Snyder was transported to Blair County Prison for arraignment and processing. She is in Blair County Prison on $50,000 straight cash bail. A preliminary hearing is set for January 21 in front of Judge Miller.
