Jamestown pair jailed after being recognized for thefts

A Jamestown pair were jailed last week after a loss prevention worker at a Warren retail store recognized one as a suspect in recent thefts.

Court records indicate one is accused of theft in two other counties.

On June 5, following the tip from loss prevention, Conewango Township police conducted a traffic stop. During an investigation, police discovered Amber L. Conrad, 34, Jamestown, N.Y., was in possession of controlled substances, and Curtis Grant Snyder, 46, Jamestown, N.Y., was in possession of stolen goods.

Conrad was arraigned June 6 before Magisterial District Judge Laura Bauer on two misdemeanor counts of possession of a controlled substance and one misdemeanor count of possession and/or use of drug paraphernalia. She was committed Warren County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bond.

Snyder was arraigned before D.J. Bauer on June 6 on charges of third-degree felony retail theft, and misdemeanor counts of receiving stolen property, providing false identification to a law enforcement officer, and defiant trespass. He was committed to Warren County Jail in lieu of $20,000 bond.

Snyder had active warrants from Erie and McKean counties, according to Conewango Township police. Snyder was also charged with a third-degree felony count of retail theft for an alleged incident on April 12 in Corry, and a misdemeanor of retail theft for an alleged incident on Dec. 3, 2018, in McKean County.

Snyder and Conrad are each scheduled for preliminary hearings on June 12.
