BREWSTER COUNTY - We have an update on the three Ukrainians locked up in Brewster County.

Federal charges are pending and a trial has been set for two of the men in September.

The sheriff's office say the three were in Mexico and had crossed the border illegally.

A rancher told deputies they walked up to his house and asked to use his phone.

They claimed to be lost hikers and tourists.

When they were done, the man offered to call the sheriff's office but they ran off.

Deputies spotted them a short time later and took them into custody.
