ISP said Snyder refused to open the door and barricaded himself inside. The Indiana State Police-South Zone SWAT team was then called to the scene; they attempted multiple times to get Snyder to willingly leave the home.

Around 6 p.m., ISP stated that they were finally able to get inside the home and found Snyder hiding in an attic above a bedroom.

In addition to his outstanding warrants, Snyder has been charged with resisting law enforcement.
