A Jackson County man is charged with burglary after he was allegedly seen in an unoccupied home in Freetown early Monday morning.
Jackson County Sheriff Mike Carothers says that around 2:40 a.m., someone saw a light moving that 18-year-old Lakota Kain Snyder, of Seymour, was using in the house on West Second Street. When Deputy Jesse Hutchinson arrived, he saw the light inside the home.
When the deputy approached the home, he saw Snyder go out the back door and walk into a shed behind the property. The deputy walked toward the shed and made contact with Snyder, who ran north towards Columbus Pike. The deputy saw Snyder pull a gun from his pocket and throw it as they were running. Two Brownstown Police officers were then called in to help with the situation. Snyder ran behind the church on Columbus Pike and was caught.
Besides burglary, Snyder is also facing charges of resisting law enforcement and possession of stolen property.
The sheriff noted that the deputy went back to the area where the gun was thrown and found a black, air soft "toy" gun that looked identical to a Smith & Wesson handgun. The property was recovered and retured to the homeowner.
