Yager’s Long Run Over

October 16, 2014

All Posts, News

Randy Michael “Mad” Yager, a federal fugitive who at one time was the regional boss of the American Outlaws Association in Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana, was captured last night in Rosarito, Mexico about 20 miles south of the United States border by Baja State Police. He was taken into custody by United States Marshalls at the San Ysidro border crossing about four hours later and was driven to the Metropolitan Correctional Center in San Diego.

Yager of Gary, Indiana was one of 17 Outlaws indicted for racketeering and various criminal predicates on June 10, 1997. Club members from Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Florida including Kevin “Spike” O’Neill were indicted after a two and a half year investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The case was formally titled United States of America v. Kevin P. “Spike” O’Neill, et al. O’Neill was later sentenced to life in prison.

Most Wanted

Tom Schneider, who was then the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin claimed the accused men constituted “a sophisticated and dangerous organized crime group which has repeatedly resorted to bombings and murder to protect their ongoing criminal enterprise.” Schneider bragged, “This is one of the largest indictments because it involves more than one chapter.” The indictment alleged that the defendants committed a series of violent acts including six murders aimed at members of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club.

Fourteen defendants were rounded up almost immediately. Sixteen defendants were eventually convicted. The only man to elude capture was Yager. Yager was last seen in Las Vegas with his girlfriend, Margaret Jelovcic. Yager was officially listed as a fugitive on August 6, 1997. For the last seventeen years, Yager has been on both the ATF and Marshall’s Service Most Wanted Lists. Yager is now 58-years-old.

No Extradition

Jelovcic has not been seen since Yager disappeared and she is officially listed as a missing person. Two years ago, a spokesmen for the Marshall’s Service said, “We don’t know if she’s helping Yager out and assisting him in any way. At this time, she’s not charged with anything, but we’re not ruling out anything.”

Since Yager was accused of federal crimes he does not have to be extradited and could be flown back to Wisconsin as early as today.

    It really sucks to be on the run. You’re at the mercy of everyone and you really can’t get established. I was on the run for three years. I made the most of it but in the end I got another charge when they caught up with me. Now, Mad will be in the county jail fighting his case which is difficult to say the least. The good news is there has been a lot of time between first being charged and now which may help him quite a bit.

    I’ve read both this well written account as well as the news media propaganda fictional account. Good job Rebel as always. However,what I was unable to read in either was what horrible criminal activities he was involved with while on the run. I’m gonna’ go out on a limb here and say there probably wasn’t much of anything to write about because the man didn’t rampage across the US & Mexico terrorizing the citizenry and more or less proved he was not a danger to society , in the can that would be called “good time” and being able to carry that off on the outside shows he’s perfectly capable of living among the walking dead without so much as disturbing their sleep walking. I know it won’t but it should count for something. Here we have a rare example of an alleged criminal who managed to live and let live (no further criminal activity has been brought forth right)? In fact, that he was able to pull that off in Mexico which isn’t exactly known as the best of neighborhoods on the boarder shows the man has extreme self control given the temptations which must present themselves in such environments. Common sense would indicate that perhaps, if he was guilty of anything, he’s turned the corner and now presents no danger to himself or those around him. Why not give the man a chance to prove himself on the outside rather than holding him behind bars where he is unlikely to be able to display any changes he has made in his lifestyle? Alternative sentencing saves the tax payers money to fight perhaps the more dangerous elements of society, there’s certainly bigger fish to fry and better ways to deal with those who can demonstrate they can turn it around provided they are actually guilty in the first place. Perhaps this is more about a trophy display than the general welfare of society.

    Mad respect to Mad 1%’er. Showed ’em how it’s done as an Outlaw outside, and if he has to, he’ll show ’em how a Lounge Lizard does it right.

    Just an FYI, if you got it to spare, every Chapter maintains a fund for Lounge Lizards. Feel free to drop by, or find a Brothers and ask.

    FYI, murder and kidnapping aside, the Statute of Limitations only applies if charges haven’t been filed against an alleged perpetrator. If, after indicted, the accused pulls a “see ya”, the clock doesn’t run. That individual then becomes a fugitive.

    Long May You Ride,

    Best of luck to Outlaw Mad1%er. Guess it’s true. The World is getting
    smaller every day.
    You’d think that (f’n MORPHINE! Can’t recall proper term!) time would
    have run out for him to be charged! (That’s right, a charge of
    “murder” has no limit.)
    GOT IT! Statute of Limitations! Slow but never in neutral!

    RESPECTS for the REAL
