(STURGIS) – A Sturgis fire fighter has been released from his duties with the department.

Sturgis Department of Public Safety Director Geoffrey Smith says following an internal investigation, Joshua Jason Snyder was separated from employment with the Department on Friday, due to multiple violations of Departmental General Orders.

Smith says earlier this month the Sturgis Fire Department Administration was made aware that Snyder allegedly violated those orders. Synder was placed on non-paid administrative leave pending an internal investigation.

Due to the nature of the alleged violations, which supposedly happened while Snyder was instructing Sturgis High School students, Fire Administration also asked the St. Joseph County Sheriff's Department to investigate if the allegations of improper conduct constituted violation of any criminal laws.

Snyder was arrested on charges of one count each of second degree and third degree criminal sexual conduct and two counts of fourth degree criminal sexual conduct.

Snyder's bond was set at $40,000. A pre-trial conference is scheduled for September 2 and a possible preliminary hearing for September 4.
