STOCKTON  - A man on the U.S. Marshal's "Top 10 Most Wanted" list as a suspect in a Stockton homicide dating back to 2011, was located and arrested in Hayward on Thursday.
Vernal Shaw, 19, was wanted in connection with the fatal shooting of 19-year-old Rickey Maggard in the area of W. 8th Street and Port Trinity Circle on Sept. 28, 2011.

The U.S. Marshal's office credited an anonymous tip for the location and apprehension of Shaw.
Shaw was transported and booked into the San Joaquin County Jail.
The arrest was the second capture of an individual on the Marshal's "Top 10 Most Wanted" list in Stockton. Alejandro Ruvalcaba, also wanted in connection with a shooting, was arrested on Wednesday after a standoff in Stockton.

GUESTS THROW BLEACH IN EYES OF MOREL MANAGERS: STOCKTON - Two motel managers in Stockton were attacked by guests, throwing bleach, who were trying to skip out on a bill.

Mina Patel at the I-5 Inn says she was giving a checkout time notice but found the two women had barricaded the door with furniture. They were packing and weren’t going to pay the bill, according to Patel.

During the confrontation, she and another manager were hit by the bleach thrown on them. She went to another room to splash water on herself. Both managers got bleach in their eyes.

Stockton Police say it could have been much more serious. They say that an assault with a caustic substance is a felony.

Officers who responded to the disturbance found that the room was trashed.

The two managers did not require medical assistance even though their eyes were still stinging from the attack. A man actually signed for the room but left after a day.

The two women stayed another day and left food thrown on the floor and damaged walls, the bed and furniture. Pills were also left behind.  The women were in their 20s and drove away in a blue GMC sedan.

TWO CARS STOLEN FROM CHEVY DEALERSHIP: TRACY- Two cars were stolen Wednesday from the Tracy Chevrolet dealership.

Workers showed up to work in the service area to find the door was smashed in, and a truck and Corvette were missing.

The Chevrolet dealership is out of view from the street, which is normally deserted because there are no other businesses in the auto mall. Wednesday’s burglary was the third break-in at the auto mall in the last few days.
