Indiana Fugitive Caught
COLMBIA - A fugitive once seen on the TV show "America's Most Wanted" is in the Boone County Jail. Sheriff's deputies caught the Indiana man near Sturgeon Wednesday. The fugitive, John Snyder, is currently being held at the Boone County Jail without bond.
Sheriff's detective Tom O'Sullivan said officers responded to a house disturbance when they found Snyder.
Deputies there say Snyder lied about who he was, but someone tipped them off about Snyder's real identity. After doing some research, deputies realized who Snyder was and went back to the residence to arrest him on suspicion of identity theft.
Snyder is a convicted rapist in Indiana and faces charges for not registering as a sex offender. O'Sullivan says his department is glad they could catch the infamous Indiana fugitive.
"Initially he continued to lie that he was not John Snyder, but eventually he knew the ruse was up and he was taken into custody," said O'Sulllivan.
