It is a destination most criminals would rather avoid, but 48-year-old Randy Mark Yager, head of the Outlaws motorcycle gang in Chicago, has just landed on the U.S. Marshals list of 15 MOST WANTED fugitives.  He earned this dubious distinction thanks to a lifetime of violent crime. 

Yager was the Regional President of the Outlaws and one of 17 club members indicted by a Wisconsin federal grand jury in June 1997, for violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) statutes.  The underlying offenses include murder, arson, possession and use of explosives, possession and trafficking in counterfeit U.S. currency, robbery, burglary, trafficking in stolen motor vehicles, and narcotics violations.  Yager is the only remaining fugitive in the indictment, and if convicted, faces a maximum term of life in prison.

In June 1997, as federal agents conducted raids and made arrests in this case, Yager was visiting Las Vegas with his girlfriend, Margie Jelovcic (pictured left), and avoided the sweep.  He has evaded authorities for the past seven years.  Jelovcic, 37, also has disappeared and investigators believe she is traveling with Yager.  Her family has filed a missing persons report and there are no outstanding warrants for Jelovcic.

Yager is a white male, 5 ‘ 11“ tall, 235 pounds, with brown hair, hazel eyes, and he generally wears a mustache, goatee, or beard.  He has notable tattoos: a Harley Davidson logo on his left upper arm; Outlaw Indians on his lower left arm; and an eagle on his right arm. 

He is considered armed and dangerous.  Anyone seeing him should call their local U.S. Marshals office, or call Marshals Headquarters at 1-800-336-0102.  A cash reward is offered for information leading to the arrest of Randy Yager.

U.S. Marshals are the nation’s primary fugitive hunting organization and capture more federal fugitives each year than all other national law enforcement agencies combined.  Four of the individuals on their 15 MOST WANTED list have been apprehended in recent months.
