Woman Arrested for Trying to Sneak Items into Jail

BREWSTER COUNTY - A Terlingua woman is behind bars after allegedly trying to sneak alcohol and tobacco into the Brewster County Jail.

45-year-old Tyra Fuglaar was arrested last week after she was caught with alcohol and tobacco.

Authorities tell NewsWest9 she was trying to pass it to her boyfriend, 27-year-old Kristopher Buchanan.

Buchanan and another man were arrested back in December and charged with beating and sexually assaulting a Terlingua teen. Fuglaar now faces a third-degree felony.
