Amanda Snyder To Serve 8 Years, 1 Month For Her Part In Cleveland Pizza Hut Robbery

Wednesday, March 02, 2011

Amanda D. Murphy Snyder has been sentenced to serve eight years and a month for his part in the May 1, 2009 robbery of the Pizza Hut at 165 Stuart Road in Cleveland.

Jeremiah Wise, who went inside during the holdup, earlier was sentenced to serve 18 years and nine months.

Authorities said Ms. Snyder was waiting in the get-away vehicle in the driver's seat with the engine running. Wise entered the Pizza Hut wearing a dark hat and sunglasses and brandishing a revolver. Pointing the gun at Pizza Hut employees, he forced them to give him money from the registers and safe.

He then got into the passenger seat of the vehicle and Ms. Snyder drove off. The vehicle was followed by officers from the Cleveland Police Department and the 10th Judicial Drug Task Force.

Ms. Snyder accelerated the vehicle in an attempt to elude the officers and Wise leaned outside the car and fired his revolver at the officers, striking at least one police car.

The couple was arrested after the vehicle ran off the road and stalled on an embankment.

Ms. Snyder appeared before Judge Sandy Mattice.

In another case, Jimmy Hopkins Jr., 33, was sentenced to serve seven years and a month in federal prison for his part in a meth ring in Van Buren County.
