    A dangerous fugitive who remained on the U.S. Marshal's "Most Wanted" list for 17 years is in custody and will appear in a San Diego courtroom Thursday.

    Randy Mark Yager, 58, was arrested at approximately 10:15 pm at a bar in Rosarito, Baja California, Mexico.

    He was transferred to the U.S. through the San Ysidro Port of Entry and will appear for a hearing in the federal courthouse downtown.

    Members of the Baja California State Police Liaison Group assisted in the arrest of Yager, who was wanted on charges including murder, firearms and explosives violations, arson, and narcotics trafficking.

    The warrant for his arrest was issued on June 2, 1997.

    Yager was former president of the Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana area “Outlaws” Motorcycle Gang and managed to elude capture for 17 years.
