Nichols Tzimbal

SANTA CRUZ - A trial date of March 11 has been set for Nicholas Daniel Tzimbal, a former Santa Cruz County "Most Wanted" person who is facing numerous charges including drug possession, burglary, vehicle theft and violating probation.

Tzimbal, 28, was arrested last month in Santa Cruz after police were dispatched to the 100 block of Magnolia Street for reports of suspicious activity. Officers spotted Tzimbal, who was wanted by the California Highway Patrol on suspicion of domestic violence and resisting arrest.

He was apprehended after jumping a few fences. Police found a stolen car in the area associated with Tzimbal, and it had stolen items and a stolen rifle inside.

Tzimbal has appeared on the county's Most Wanted list twice in the past two years and was arrested in March on suspicion of burglarizing two recreational vehicles in Live Oak. In that incident, he jumped into Schwan Lake to avoid capture, sheriff's deputies said at the time.

Tzimbal remains in County Jail in lieu of $75,000 bail.
