Bloody fight leads officers to a meth house

PARAGOULD, Ark. – Officers responding to a 911 call Wednesday in Greene County were greeted by chaos, blood and meth.

Deputies arrived at Greene County 223 in response to a 911 call Wednesday, according to the incident report. Officers arrived to find a woman with “blood smeared on her chest, arms, and face.” The subject, Sarah Snyder, told deputies she had taken in a homeless woman and woke up to find the woman pilfering through her things, leading to a fight.

Snyder then locked herself in her bedroom before fleeing her own home, she told officers. When officers checked out the woman’s home, they found another bloodied woman, Jamie Koster. Officers attempted to piece together the chaos, photographing blood spatter evidence as well as blunt objects like baseball bats and flash-lights, all with blood on them.

However, as deputies continued their search, they found what may have been a motivator behind the madness.

Officers found a bag with several blue and green pills inside and more pills strewn about nearby. A hypodermic needle was observed, along with two spoons and a white residue in them. Black digital scales were also found.

From what officers could discern, Koster was allegedly assaulted by Snyder, carrying several weapons, according to the report. For this, Snyder was arrested on a felony charge of aggravated assault, felony possession with intent to deliver (meth), felony possession of drug paraphernalia. She was also arrested for endangering the welfare of a minor.

According to Koster’s statements, Snyder’s two underage daughters were present for the entire incident.

Koster was charged with endangering the welfare of a minor and battery three, both misdemeanors.
