Bondsman Arrested for Aggressive Behavior

A bail bondsman is on the other side of a jail cell this morning on burglary and kidnapping charges.

Pablo Alcalde owns the Real Bail Bonds company, and as bail bondsman, Alcalde is allowed to bring in those who skip bail.

Orem Police said on Sept. 4, Alcalde went to the home of a man related to a suspect who reportedly jumped bail. Alcalde handcuffed the suspect's relative and threatened him with bodily harm if he didn't help him find the alleged bail-jumper.

Alcalde then took the captive relative to another home, where he found the suspect's wife and forcibly put her in hand cuffs after she told him she didn't know where her husband was. Police say he searched the home without permission, and when he found nothing he forced the handcuffed woman into his car.

Officers say Alcalde drove the suspect's family members around looking the bail jumper, and when he had no luck, he released them on a street corner in American Fork.

Alcalde is currently in the Utah County Jail on $200,000 cash bail for investigation of kidnapping, burglary, assault, and a slew of other charges.
