According to the complaint, for months spanning February through December 2023, Snyder conspired with others to rob two armored trucks in the Chicago suburbs of Country Club Hills in February and Chicago Heights in September, as well as three ATMs in the Chicago suburbs of Lansing and Blue Island in August, and Homewood in September. The conspirators also later attempted to rob a second armored truck in Country Club Hills, but did not obtain any money, authorities say.

In the armored truck robberies, two to five robbers armed with handguns took cash from the truck drivers as they were servicing ATMs or stores, the complaint states. The conspirators often drove stolen vehicles to the robbery locations and abandoned the vehicles afterward, the complaint states.

If convicted, Snyder could face a maximum of 20 years in prison.
