Shoplifting Call Results in Meth Arrest

arrest snyderMADISONVILLE, Ky. (11/15/13) – An Earlington woman has been arrested on several drug related charges after Madisonville Police were summoned to Walmart regarding an alleged shoplifter.

According to the Madisonville Police Department, Officers Clay Stroud and William Strader were dispatched to Walmart and were advised the suspect was using a knife to open packages of make-up, personal care items, and concealing them in her purse without making an attempt to pay for them.

MPD confronted Kristine Nichole Snyder, 24, and recovered two bags of stolen merchandise, according to the report. During the search in her purse, Stroud located a yellow and blue “coin purse” that contained two bags of suspected methamphetamine, a larger corner bag of a suspected methamphetamine cutting agent along with a suspected burnt marijuana roach.

After being advised of her rights, Stroud asked her if the contraband belonged to her. Snyder informed the officers that someone had given it to her before she entered the store, the report said.

Stroud also located a prescription pill bottle that did not have Snyder's name on it. Inside the bottle were several suspected Clonazepam and hydrocodone pill mixes.

After a field test of suspected meth, the test came back positive.

Snyder is currently lodged in the Hopkins County Jail on a $2,938 cash bail bond for theft by unlawful taking disposition/ shoplifting under $500, first degree possession of controlled substance, first offense (meth), second degree possession of controlled substance, (drug unspecified), third degree possession of controlled substance (drug unspecified), possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia buy/possess and an out of county warrant from Muhlenberg County.
