Pasadena Police Apprehend Wanted Kidnap Suspect, Jose Castillo this past Saturday

On June 19th, 2010 at approximately 9:40 AM, the Pasadena Police Department arrested Jose Castillo for the assault and kidnapping of his ex-girlfriend on May 27th at a South Lake Avenue parking structure.  “The investigation has been on-going with detectives assertively following up on leads regarding Mr. Castillo’s whereabouts,” says Detective Lieutenant Tracey Ibarra, “He knew he was wanted by police and went into hiding, making it challenging to apprehend him right away, but good work by our Detectives and Fugitive Apprehension Team resulted in Mr. Castillo’s arrest without incident at a family member’s home in Duarte. “ Jose Castillo is currently being held at the Los Angeles County Jail for a kidnapping, domestic violence, and a terrorist threats warrant.  His bail is $400,000 and he is scheduled to be arraigned at the Pasadena Superior Court on June 22nd.  “The coordinated efforts by law enforcement officers in tracking down and arresting this dangerous individual is to be commended,” says Interim Chief of Police Christopher Vicino.  “But most importantly, the victim’s fears can be mitigated knowing that Castillo is arrested and behind bars.”
