LSFTF logoWindcrest, TX - Isaiah Yellowrobe Meuchelboeck, 18, was arrested today by members of the United States Marshals Service Lone Star Fugitive Task Force (LSFTF) in Windcrest, TX. An arrest warrant was issued pursuant to an investigation by the Comal County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO), where it is alleged that Meuchelboeck committed aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Today, members of the LSFTF initiated an investigation in locating and apprehending Meuchelboeck. Through investigative efforts and extensive surveillance, task force officers arrested Meuchelboeck outside a residence located in the 5900 block of Winding Ridge in Windcrest, TX. Task force officers observed Meuchelboeck exit the residence, identified themselves, and took him into custody without incident.

In the early morning hours of March 16, 2016, Meuchelboeck allegedly broke into a Comal County residence armed with a gun and a knife. Reports stated that the husband and wife home owners awoke to Meuchelboeck standing in the darkness of their bedroom. The husband wrestled Meuchelboeck to the floor and pinned him down until Comal County Sheriff Deputies arrived. Meuchelboeck was arrested and charged with burglary with the intent to commit a felony, but was subsequently released on bond. Today, the Comal County District Attorney also charged Meuchelboeck with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. A warrant was immediately issued for Meuchelboeck’s arrest and task force officers took him into custody hours later.

Meuchelboeck is currently being held in custody at the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.

Robert R. Almonte, United States Marshal for the Western District of Texas, stated, “I often commend our task force officers for the diligent work they do in tracking down these dangerous and violent fugitives, but I must also commend the husband in this case who put his own life at risk to protect the lives of his wife and his family.”
