Burglar targets animal charity again

(CNS): Ricky Johnny Alvarado (26) has admitted breaking into the Humane Society and stealing cash while he was serving a suspended sentence for a previous burglary at the same charity, where he once worked. Alvarado pleaded guilty Friday to one count of burglary in relation to a break-in at the animal shelter and offices on 1 September, when he made off with $750. He was remanded in custody until sentencing next month, when both this latest burglary and his previous conviction will be considered.

Alvarado was convicted of two counts of burglary at the charity’s compound on North Sound Road, George Town, last summer and was convicted in February of this year, when on the morning of his trial he admitted the break-in and stealing over $2,000. Following those admissions he received an 18-month sentence, suspended for two years, in June. But just a few months later, despite being given a chance, Alvarado repeated his crime.

    The courts need to get serious about crime. How is it that this repeat offender was not in jail already? The judges need to understand that delivering a stern tongue-lashing in court makes absolutely no impression on these career criminals and does nothing to keep the rest of us safe.

    After repeated burglaries why does the HS still keep cash on site overnight? Can’t management take some preventative actions?

      Oh, we built the wall, but Alden insisted on lots of gates and red carpets, and handed everyone a key.

    Johnny keep your head up. We all know that the system has failed in your rehabilitation. Hopefully this time they actually step up to the plate.

    One can hope the magistrate shows how much he considers theft from charities such as this, damage society by delivering a harsh deterrent.
