Ridgeway mom accused of making threats

RIDGEWAY — A Murdock Road woman was arrested Tuesday afternoon after threatening Child Protective Services workers and law enforcement officers, Orleans County Sheriff’s deputies said.

Deputies accompanied a CPS worker about noon to 2969 Murdock Rd., for the purpose of checking the welfare of three children, ages 13, 6 and 4. CPS had requested the deputies’ help following a threat received yesterday by a Catholic Charities social worker, deputies said.

Laura S. Snider, 29, allegedly made statements that she would shoot CPS workers and police if they came to her home, deputies said.

Snider was taken into custody and charged with making a terroristic threat, a Class D felony, second-degree obstructing governmental administration, three counts of endangering the welfare of a child and resisting arrest.

Snider appeared before Town of Ridgeway/Shelby Justice Dawn Keppler and was committed to the Orleans County Jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail. Her children were placed in the temporary care of a relative.
