A traffic stop by Plymouth Police Officer Ryan Richey early Wednesday morning ended with the driver fleeing from the officer, abandoning his vehicle and fleeing on foot.
About 1:15 Wednesday morning Officer Ryan Richey stopped a vehicle near Monroe and Michigan Streets for a traffic infraction. During the traffic stop, it was determined that the driver, 24 year old Aaron Sneed of Bourbon had a suspended driver’s license. Sneed fled in his vehicle from the officer and eventually abandoned his vehicle after driving across private property on the west side of the Yellow River. He ran towards the river and was able to escape the Plymouth Police Officers.
Detective Leo Mangus and Bourbon Police Chief William Martin attempted to locate Mr. Sneed at his residence about 10:00 a.m. Wednesday. Sneed was eventually located hiding in the crawlspace of his residence on East Center Street.
Aaron Sneed was transported to the Marshall County Jail and booked in for Resisting Law Enforcement and Driving While Suspended. His bond was set at $3,000.00 cash.
