Cayman Islands Humane Society

(CNS): Ricky Johnny Alvarado (27) pleaded guilty to burglary when he appeared in Grand Court on Monday, when he was scheduled to stand trial for four break-ins at the Cayman Islands Humane Society. The George Town resident had previously denied the allegations that on four occasions between 20 July and 18 September last year he broke into the charity’s premises on North Sound Road. Most of the more than $2,100 cash was taken in the first burglary at the facility, where Alvarado had performed volunteer work.

As he came clean at the last minute on the morning of what was scheduled to be his trial, Alvarado pleaded to two counts of burglary and the crown agreed to leave the other two charges on file since he had left empty-handed on both those occasions. He is now due to be sentenced in April.

    If he needed an interpreter in court then perhaps he needed the money to pay for his Immigration test.

    Doesn’t get much lower than stealing from a charity. Hope he goes away for long enough to realise the error of his ways.

    On the subject of stealing from charities, can anyone explain why that woman who robbed the Pines hasn’t been extradited yet?

      Not only is she still in the Uk but last Sept in Good Housekerping (UK version) there was an article about how her husband left her & she had to start over. She did not mention why she could no longer live in Cayman nor that she had got away with $’sss….totally disgusting that she didn’t say she was a thief of funds from an old people’s home
