A 29-year-old woman from Hudson was arrested late Friday night on multiple charges, including four counts of neglect of a dependent, after leading an Indiana State Trooper on a short pursuit in Northeast LaGrange County.
According to Senior Trooper Deven Hostetler, at approximately 11 p.m. on March 15, he attempted to stop a vehicle for a traffic violation on CR 650N near CR 1100E. The driver of the vehicle accelerated and continued westbound on CR 650N and then northbound on CR 1100E. During the short pursuit, a passenger in the vehicle was said to have been throwing items out of the vehicle’s window.
The vehicle finally stopped at approximately 11:05 p.m., after having driven on a flat tire on SR 120 and CR 475E. The driver, Jilyan Janelle Snyder, 29, of Hudson was taken into custody without incident. She had her four children ages 6-13 in the vehicle with her at the time. Their custody was transferred to a family member and a 25-year-old male passenger was not charged at the time. An unknown amount of methamphetamine was located inside of Snyder’s purse at the time of her arrest.
Snyder was taken to and incarcerated in the LaGrange County Jail on preliminary charges of Neglect of a Dependent (four counts), Resisting Law Enforcement and Possession of Methamphetamine. She also had arrest warrants issued for her out of Noble County for Possession of Methamphetamine and Visiting a Common Nuisance.
