They responded to it and made arrangements to meet Samuel Snyder at a local hotel.

According to court documents, Snyder also “agreed to deliver crystal methamphetamine” and allegedly asked if he could bring a friend or two.


Investigators said Snyder and Jules Williams showed up to a detective's hotel room. Both men were arrested.

Detectives said they noticed a third man in the hotel, Kevin Fowler.

“He paid for the taxi so his two friends could go party with an individual in the room,” police said in the criminal complaint. “He stated he knew they were going to engage in sexual acts for money and that he would get money from them to pay for the taxi.”

Four other people were charged in related incidents.
