Suspect Jumps From Second Story Window In Biddeford To Elude Cops
A man wanted on a probation violation from a drug trafficking case was arrested after jumping from a second story window in Biddeford.
Maine State Police say 47-year-old Jamison Snyder had a nationwide warrant for Probation Revocation from a trafficking case. He had just recently been released from prison, and now has 7 of his original 9 year sentence to serve. A State Police investigation into his whereabouts led Troopers to a Biddeford apartment building on Main Street. Just after 6:00 on the evening of February 18th, State and Biddeford Police went to the apartment, but a woman inside refused to answer the door, stating that she was getting dressed.
An officer standing behind the building then saw Snyder jump from a second story window and land on the ice. Police found him lying on the ground, bleeding from a head injury. He refused to show his hands and police finally resorted to using a taser to take him into custody. Police say they found a plastic baggy in his hand that contained suspected heroin/fentanyl, cocaine, and crack. A large amount of cash was found on his person by hospital staff.
Snyder will now face a new charge of Aggravated Trafficking in a schedule drug. He was taken to Maine Medical Center under police guard and will be held at the York County Jail.
