Kidnapper arrested

Submitted By Milpitas PD

On April 16, 2012, a reported kidnapping had been captured on a surveillance video, at a local gas station, in Union City. The suspect, later identified as Eframe Joseph Haile of San Jose, was observed chasing down a female and violently forcing her into his vehicle. The female victim was eventually located, however Haile remained at large. An arrest warrant had been issued for Haile for kidnapping and false imprisonment. The Union City Police Department sent out a "Be On the Lookout" bulletin for Haile and his vehicle to local police departments.

On April 19, detectives from the Milpitas Special Investigations Unit, spotted Haile's vehicle, a 2001 Audi A6, parked at a local hotel in the City of Milpitas. The detectives began conducting surveillance and spotted a subject matching the description of Haile on the balcony near a second floor hotel room. Milpitas police officers responded to the area and quickly set up a perimeter around the hotel. As officers attempted to make contact at the hotel room, Haile jumped out of the rear second story window and began running through an adjacent business parking lot. Perimeter units quickly spotted Haile and detained him, at gunpoint, where he was eventually taken into custody without further incident.

Joseph Eframe Haile was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail for his outstanding warrants and the Union City Police Department was notified of his capture.
