Tyann Kae Briggs was taken into custody on Sunday, Feb. 11, for possession of methamphetamine and marijuana.
Police were called to Briggs’ apartment on Sunday after she had told someone she was trapped in a basement with a child. When police arrived they found a broken cell phone and black Nintendo DS case in the hall in front of her apartment. The DS case had two meth pipes inside.
Briggs answered the door and officers saw that she was alone in the apartment. They also noted a disheveled apartment and “knives and razor blades scattered about and furniture to be cut apart on the floor,” according to the affidavit.
“Briggs was extremely energetic and shaking,” continues the report. She allowed the officers to examine the apartment.
Officers noticed a methamphetamine pipe in Briggs’ cigarette pack as she attempted to have a smoke. She admitted to using methamphetamine and was placed under arrest.
Officers then observed a homemade bowl containing burnt marijuana on the coffee table. Briggs denied having any drugs on her person, but while at the Natrona County Detention Center deputies found a small jeweler bag with “a residual amount of suspected methamphetamine inside her underwear,” according to the report.
Briggs was charged with taking a controlled substance (methamphetamine) into a penal institution, possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), and possession of a controlled substance (marijuana).
All of those cited or arrested are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law. Charges are subject to change following official filings from the Natrona County District Attorney’s Office.
