Former St. Clair Co. sheriff indicted for stealing recovered property

Posted July 24, 2014 at 10:15 am

Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that the former sheriff of St. Clair County was indicted by a federal grand jury Tuesday, July 22, for stealing property recovered in criminal cases and for selling a stolen firearm.

“Today’s indictment alleges that the former sheriff treated the county’s evidence room like his personal tool shed, cheating the taxpayers and citizens of St. Clair County,” Dickinson said. “No one is above the law. When the county’s chief law enforcement officer violates the very law he took an oath to uphold, he will be held accountable.”

Ronald E. Snodgrass, 46, El Dorado Springs, was charged in a three-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Springfield. Snodgrass served three terms as the elected sheriff in St. Clair County, from Jan. 1, 2001, through Dec.
