PERRY – A Warsaw motorist was jailed on drug and resisting arrest charges and two passengers in his vehicle were cited for marijuana infractions following a traffic stop on South Main Street here late Saturday that ended with a brief foot chase involving Wyoming County sheriff’s deputies and Perry police officers.

Kevin J. Snyder, 21, of Genesee Street, Warsaw, is being held on $5,000 cash bail.

After Snyder was stopped for a traffic infraction on South Main Street about 11:50 p.m. Saturday, he got out of his car but then tried to flee on foot, allegedly throwing down four Adderall pills before being captured down the block, police said. A quantity of marijuana and a scale were found in his coat.

Snyder is being held on criminal possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of marijuana, criminal use of drug paraphernalia, obstruction of governmental administration, resisting arrest and unauthorized stickers on his car windows.
