A yard-to-yard search of a San Jose neighborhood Thursday afternoon did not turn up a suspect wanted by Milpitas police for multiple felony warrants, police said.
Police first started looking for the wanted parolee, 31-year-old Jeramie Balmonte Posas, at about 2:15 p.m. when he was located in the 1000 block of Junesong Way in San Jose, Milpitas police Sgt. Raj Maharaj said.
He fled from his vehicle and into a neighborhood, throwing a gun away as he ran, Maharaj said.
He jumped fences into neighborhood backyards to evade the officers. San Jose police assisted in the investigation by providing traffic control, establishing a perimeter and conducting a yard-to-yard search, San Jose police Sgt. Jason Dwyer said.
Police continued to search the area until shortly after 7:30 p.m. when they called it off with the suspect still at large.
Police have not yet identified the suspect or disclosed the nature of his warrants. Maharaj said he is considered armed and dangerous.
Posas, a Milpitas resident, was driving a black 1990 Ford Mustang convertible.
Milpitas Police are asking for the public's help in locating the suspect. If anyone has information regarding this investigation, contact the Milpitas Police Department at 408-586-2400.
