Officials say a Grayslake woman who allegedly threatened to stab her neighbor made false 911 calls and claimed she was the victim of a hate crime and her neighbor was racist.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office responded on October 11 to the 33600 block of North Royal Oak Lane in unincorporated Grayslake for a harassment complaint.
Lake County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Chief Christopher Covelli told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that deputies arrived and learned of a neighbor dispute.
Sandra M. Snyder, 46, of Grayslake, was reported to be harassing her neighbor.
Covelli said that Snyder threatened to stab the neighbor’s wife.
Sheriff’s deputies spoke to Snyder, who appeared intoxicated. Deputies rectified the situation and left the scene.
Snyder called 911 five minutes later to report a hate crime and assault, Covelli said.
She informed 911 dispatchers that her neighbor was racist and that he threatened to punch her after deputies left.
Covelli said deputies responded back to the location and were able to determine there was no verbal or physical contact between the neighbor and Snyder.
Deputies left the scene again and Snyder again made a false 911 call reporting something that was not true, Covelli said.
Sheriff’s deputies attempted to arrest Snyder but she allegedly resisted and was eventually placed into handcuffs.
Snyder was charged with filing a false police report, misuse of 911, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
She was released after being transported to the Lake County Jail and is scheduled to appear in court again on November 9.
