South American authorities on Thursday nabbed a member of the Hell’s Angels Motorcycle Club  who was on the U.S. Marshals Top 15 Most Wanted Fugitive List for allegedly murdering a Phoenix area woman in 2001.

Paul Merle Eischeid, 39,  a former Charles Schwab stockbroker, was captured in Buenos Aires by Argentinean authorities, the U.S. Marshals Service said.

The U.S. Marshals Service said it had developed information about Eischeid’s whereabouts along with Diplomatic Security Service.  The information was then passed on to the Interpol and local Argentinean authorities, and an Interpol Red Notice was issued.

Eischeid was  also wanted  on federal drug trafficking and racketeering charges, authorities said.

“Eischeid’s crimes were horrendous and his potential for continued violence made his arrest a priority for the U.S. Marshals,” Stacia A. Hylton, Director of the U.S. Marshal Service, said in a statement.

Eischeid was charged in the 2001 murder Cynthia Garcia, who was allegedly attacked while attending a party at the Hell’s Angels’ clubhouse in Mesa, Az., the Marshals Service said.

She was severely beaten, thrown in the trunk of a car, and taken to the desert where she was brutally stabbed, said David Gonzales, U.S. Marshal for the Arizona district.

Authorities said the son, the director of the Republic of Liberia National Security Agency, along with his deputy director, worked undercover with the DEA and met with traffickers, who offered bribes of cash and cocaine in exchange for safe passage of their drug shipments, authorities said.

Liberian authorities arrested five defendants in the case on May 28 and 29 and turned them over to the U.S., where they face indictment in New York.  U.S. authorities noted that it was the first time in more than 30 years that Liberia had transferred narcotics defendants to the U.S.
