A Clarion County fugitive apprehended Tuesday night in Fawn was wanted by the state for violating his parole on a property theft charge.

Ryan D. Snyder, 33, of Mayport, Clarion County, pleaded guilty and was sentenced in 2009 to 21⁄2 to five years in state prison, according to court records.

A judge approved Snyder's request to serve his sentence through the state's Boot Camp program, which is a six-month, military-style boot camp alternative to state prison.

He was released in September 2010 on parole, said Sherry Tate, a spokeswoman for the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole.

According to court records, Snyder has violated his parole several times over the years. In April 2012 he want sent to the state prison in Greene County for six days, then released again on parole, Tate said.

Fawn police arrested Snyder following a 90-minute search that ensued when Snyder abandoned his son and fled from police who had stopped his vehicle near Tour-Ed Mine because the underside of the car was on fire.

Snyder gave police an incorrect first name, but an officer discovered Snyder's arrest warrant when he ran the vehicle registration.

Stemming from Tuesday's incident, Snyder is charged with endangering the welfare of children, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and reckless endangerment.

Snyder's 6-year-old son is in the custody of Allegheny County Children, Youth and Families Services.
