Snyder to serve 45 months in prison



A woman will serve five consecutive nine-month sentences for stealing from the Indian Lake Boosters, Ace Propane LLC and a campaign to raise money for family who lost a teen in a fatal car crash.

Tara L. Snyder, 34, of 160 State Route 720, Lakeview, pleaded guilty Dec. 5 to three counts of theft and two counts of forgery, all fifth-degree felonies.

In exchange, prosecutors dropped on theft charge; three counts of telecommunications fraud, fourth-degree felonies; and a misdemeanor theft charge.

Logan County Common Pleas Court Judge William T. Goslee’s sentencing comes to a total of 45 months in prison for Snyder.

According to reports filed with the Logan County Sheriff’s Office, she was given the job of developing and printing the fall program for the boosters and changed the pricing for sponsors and instructed them to make out checks payable to her and then mail the checks to her.

She also allegedly signed and deposited checks written to Ace Propane LLC and kept proceeds from at least 280 $10 raffle tickets sold to benefit Abagail Dague’s family.

Abagail was a passenger in a car that was struck broadside June 5 at the intersection of Ludlow Road and State Route 245.
