It was mentioned that the net fee for this quick cash, which came out of, presumable, a secondary mortgage against his home, initially came to $25,000, thus requiring him to ultimately pay back a total of $125,000 for the privilege of borrowing $100,000 in a real big hurry.

Kevin S. Merritt, a defendant in a high-profile Los Angeles real estate fraud case, has dropped from sight, and authorities have issued a warrant for his arrest on $1-million bail after he failed to show up at a pretrial hearing. Separately, a task force of U.S. and local arson investigators is seeking to question Merritt about a string of arson fires in rundown buildings owned by a business firm that Merritt worked for, law enforcement officials have told The Times.

Operating its real estate business out of a fried-chicken stand in Compton, no-frills Wolf River Holding Corp. has aroused more than a few suspicions. Last year, a team of local and federal agents raided the chicken stand as part of a long-running investigation into an alleged arson-for-profit ring involving fugitive businessman Kevin S. Merritt, who investigators say controls Wolf River.
