Motorcycle theft suspect arrested
Submitted By Sgt. Kevin Corvin, Milpitas PD
On September 28, 2012, at approximately 8:16 a.m., a Milpitas Police Department detective walked through the parking lot of a business in the 66 (B) of S. Main Street. The detective noticed two motorcycles in the parking lot that were backed into parking spaces. One of the motorcycles had a paper license plate affixed to the license plate frame. The detective kept the area under surveillance until one of the motorcycles left the parking lot. Detectives suspected the motorcycle was possibly stolen.
Detectives followed the motorcycle as it drove into San Jose and ultimately stopped at an apartment building in the 1000 (B) of Roewill Dr. Detectives identified the apartment where the motorcycle rider went. A check of the motorcycle's vehicle identification number revealed it had been reported stolen.
Detectives went to the apartment and contacted the rider inside the apartment. The rider was identified as 30 year-old San Jose resident Jermaine Balmonte Posas. Posas was arrested and booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail on the charges of auto theft, possession of stolen property and auto theft with a prior conviction.
