Bottle Run?Road man accused of heroin possession, shoplifting

An alleged shoplifter nabbed outside Wegmans, 201 William St., following a brief chase faces drug charges after officers discovered two baggies of heroin inside his wallet, city police said.

Scott Andrew Snyder, 26, of 2757 Bottle Run Road, was caught outside the supermarket about 5:15 p.m. on June 28, police said.

When police searched him and discovered and seized the heroin from his wallet, Snyder did not appear terribly concerned, telling an officer that he would “simply go buy more,” according to affidavit.

Charged with possession of heroin, possession of drug paraphernalia and shoplifting, Snyder has been sent a summons to appear before District Judge Allen P. Page III.
