Ex-stockbroker on ‘Most Wanted’ list
PHOENIX — Paul Merle Eischeid, a former Charles Schwab stockbroker who joined the Hells Angels motorcycle club, is the newest addition to the U.S. Marshals Service’s “15 Most Wanted” fugitives list — sought in connection with the brutal slaying of a Phoenix woman.
Eischeid also is being sought by federal authorities for fleeing indictments on racketeer influenced and corrupt organization (RICO) charges and violent crime in aid of racketeering. Due to his career as a stockbroker and his clean criminal record, he had been released on his personal recognizance and placed on federal pretrial release with electronic monitoring.
The Maricopa County Attorney's Office in Phoenix asked the U.S. marshals to assist in apprehending Eischeid, 35, for questioning in the death of Cynthia Yvonne Garcia, 44, who was killed in 2001 after a party at the Hells Angels’ clubhouse in Mesa, Ariz.
Wildfire breaches containment line
MEYERS — Firefighters trying to tame a raging wildfire that has destroyed about 200 homes near Lake Tahoe yesterday suffered a setback when the blaze jumped a fire line, forcing a new round of evacuations, authorities said.
Firefighters were working to protect a development outside South Lake Tahoe when the blaze expanded, prompting the evacuation of a 300-home subdivision. About 2,000 people evacuated, according to South Lake Tahoe PoliceLt. Martin Hale.
Authorities also issued a voluntary evacuation order for a pricey waterfront subdivision on the lake, officials said.
The flare-up is about three miles from where the fire started Sunday near the south end of Lake Tahoe. By yesterday afternoon, the blaze had consumed more than 2,700 acres — about 4.2 square miles — and was about 40 percent contained, fire officials said.
