SYRACUSE — A Columbia City man faces four charges after allegedly breaking into a vehicle and a residence where he then fell asleep.
Aaron Phillip Snyder, 33, 349 North Line Street, faces charges of possession of methamphetamine, a level 6 felony; residential entry, a level 6 felony; unauthorized entry of a motor vehicle, a class B misdemeanor; and possession of paraphernalia, a class C misdemeanor.
On Wednesday, Jan. 29, Syracuse police responded to a report of a suspicious person. At the scene, police spoke with a woman who said that she found a man in her Ford Flex. She said he entered her home and locked the door while she called police, said the affidavit of probable cause.
Police found the man, later identified as Snyder, sleeping on a couch in the residence. The woman said she did not know Synder, according to the affidavit. Police also found a camouflage backpack and a black Carhartt-branded jacket on the table near Snyder. He said the jacket and backpack belonged to him, said the affidavit.
After receiving Synder’s consent, the police found a glass smoking device inside of Snyder’s jacket. The device tested positive for methamphetamine. Clear baggies found in the backpack also tested positive, said the affidavit.
On Jan. 29, Snyder was booked in the Kosciusko County Jail. He was later released on his own recognizance, said the affidavit.
