Indiana man sentenced to 72 months for drugs, firearm charges

An Indiana man has been sentenced to 72 months in prison for drugs-and-guns cases.
Michael Snyder, 35, of Francesville was sentenced in U.S. District Court in South Bend after he pled guilty in two cases: One for distributing 50 grams or more of methamphetamine and one for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
According to documents, in November of 2021, Snyder, who was driving a stolen vehicle in Mishawaka, was stopped by law enforcement officers. A loaded, stolen handgun was recovered from under his seat.  Snyder had a prior felony conviction, and as such, was banned from possessing the firearm.
In April of last year, an investigation revealed that Snyder was the source of a pound of meth that was sold in Winamac.


  1. This criminal should NEVER be on the streets among law abiding citizens again. Stolen car, stolen gun, felon in possession…what part of three strikes and it’s through the felon zapper don’t they get? 72 months in the pen (a slap on the wrist) will only get him new criminal skills to use against the law abiding when he gets out.
