Yes, readers, another member of the MASIEL crime family has been arrested for a violent offense. We reported on Benjamin Masiel, Pechanga's $360,000 per year carjacker HERE and Junior Basquez HERE and Larry Miranda HERE but now, we have Robert Masiel, with a long history of offensives, listed below who shoots at 4 people over a $200 debt.
Now, remember that Pechanga tribal members are making about $360,000 per year, since they violated their own constitution by eliminating 25% of their tribe. By terminating 400 employees a couple of months ago, that we wrote about HERE, they were able to keep per capita high.
A 42-year-old man who allegedly fired two shots into a group of four people – one of whom was 14 years old – in San Jacinto was behind bars Thursday in lieu of $1 million bail, awaiting arraignment on an attempted murder charge.
Robert Martin Masiel, who lives on the Soboba Indian Reservation, was arrested Wednesday in the 43000 block of Benjamin Street by sheriff's deputies who served a search warrant and recovered numerous firearms, according to the sheriff's department.
Masiel, a Pechanga tribal member who has a home on the Soboba Indian Reservation, was staying at the Valley Vista address, sheriff's Detective Steven Fredericks said.
“He's got an extensive criminal history,” he added. OP: Uh, YEAH, see the list of violations BELOW
Masiel is suspected of firing a 9mm pistol at four people in the backyard of a home at 379 Main St. in San Jacinto about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to the sheriff's department.
“It looks like he was angry over a debt,” Fredericks said.
Rudy Saucedo, who said he has known Masiel for 20 years, told sheriff's deputies that Masiel fired the shots, according to a declaration in support of an arrest warrant filed by Fredericks.
Saucedo said he owed Masiel $200 from two years ago, Fredericks wrote in court papers.
Now, readers, Masiel has made roughly $650,000 in the past two years, since his family led the charge to eliminate 25% of the tribe. And he shoots at 4 people for $200. I guess he's standing up for principal?
IS the Pechanga Casino SAFE?
MASIEL, ROBERT MARTIN
