EUGENE, Ore. -- A woman wanted for a probation violation who escaped from Lane County deputies last month by jumping in the Siuslaw River is back in custody.

A county dispatch clerk told The Register-Guard that 31-year-old Tasha Marie Gustina was arrested Monday night in Eugene.

She was convicted in 2011 of methamphetamine possession and eluding police. Deputies were trying to take her into custody March 21 for violating probation when she jumped in the river near Mapleton and got away.
