A Formerly Wanted Woman

APRIL 5--After six months as a fugitive, a former Playboy Playmate of the Month has been arrested and jailed in Florida on felony charges of doctor shopping and trafficking in Oxycodone, the powerful painkiller.

Tanya Beyer, pictured in the mug shot at left, was nabbed late last month and is being held in the Palm Beach jail on $100,000 bond. Beyer, Playboy's Miss February 1992, was named last August in a probable cause affidavit accusing her of obtaining Oxycodone from three separate doctors. The affidavit, sworn by an investigator with the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, alleges that Beyer, 38, was 'possibly doctor shopping as well as using and selling the scheduled II narcotics she was illegally obtaining.'

In early-October, police branded Beyer a fugitive, and sought the public's help in locating her via the Palm Beach Crime Stoppers program. On March 24, Beyer surrendered at the Palm Beach lockup, according to a sheriff's booking card, which lists her current state of residence as Colorado. After her 1992 centerfold turn, Beyer appeared in a variety of other Playboy publications and videos over the following years. (5 pages)
