Fugitive Captured & Facing Sexual Assault Charges
New Braunfels, TX – Jared Beyer, 24, was arrested yesterday by the United States Marshals Service Lone Star Fugitive Task Force (LSFTF) in New Braunfels, TX. An arrest warrant was issued pursuant to an investigation by the New Braunfels Police Department (NBPD), where it is alleged that Beyer committed sexual assault of a child.
Yesterday, members of the LSFTF initiated an investigation in locating and apprehending Beyer. Task force officers, through investigative efforts, determined that Beyer was at a residence in the 1300 block of River Road in New Braunfels, TX. Task force officers conducted a brief surveillance and approached the residence. Task force officers entered the residence, identified themselves, and made contact with Beyer. Beyer was then taken into custody without incident.
In 2013, Beyer was allegedly involved in sexually assaulting a child under the age of 16 on multiple occasions. On January 21, 2014, a District Court Judge of Comal County issued a warrant for Beyer’s arrest.
Beyer is currently being held in custody at the Comal County Jail.
Robert R. Almonte, United States Marshal for the Western District of Texas, stated, “We needed to arrest this fugitive before he had the opportunity to assault this child again. The physical and mental damage has already been done to this child, but now the healing process can begin.”
