An Albany man was arrested this week on multiple charges after he was involved in a traffic accident near Yachats. Lincoln County deputies say that Craig Snyder, 32, of Albany was driving along 101 when the accident occurred. They say when they pulled up they noticed that Snyder was in possession of meth and that his girlfriend, Aleesha Wells, 27, of Albany had meth visible in her purse. In the back seat were four young children. None were hurt.
Deputies say they arrested Snyder on an outstanding warrant, possession of meth, and endangering the welfare of the four children. He was transported to the Lincoln County Jail where he’s being held in lieu of $77,500. Wells was cited at the scene but not arrested. Her children were turned over to relatives.
