Wanted US Fugitive enrolled at UB in Belmopan

Nadine Martin

Thirty-five year old Nadine Gladden, enrolled at the University of Belize’s Faculty of Management, is a wanted fugitive by United States federal authorities.  Gladden, whose real name is Nadine Martin, is on the lam after committing a string of misdemeanor offenses in Tampa, Florida.  A warrant for her arrest, for the offence of throwing a missile at a vehicle in Hillsborough County in June 2009, was later issued in June 2010.  Gladden, however, absconded and relocated to Belize where she has since registered as a student at UB.  It is unclear at this time whether or not Gladden has been detained.  The school’s administration nonetheless, says that Gladden met all the necessary requirements for admission and since students are not mandated to submit a police record they were unaware of her criminal background in the United States.

  2. Storm says:

    Maybe criminal records checks should be part of the admission process at UB. There are too few available slots, and they should go to the best students with the best character. Criminals need not apply, at least until they have settled their legal matters.

    ANOTHER FLAW IN THE BELIZE SYSTEM.
    TRY GO TO USA, MEXICO, CANADA ETC. SEE WHAT HELL YOU GO THROUGH BEFORE ADMISSION !!!

  8. Belmopan says:

    That is the same reason why no one likes the Americans!!!!!

    We in Belize continue to praise up americans while the entire world despises them…

    To hell with America

  9. local says:

    Nads is no dam american……this girl is home and to hell with uncle sam and his bull sheet foreign policy…….it a petty bull that now this girl is left with this scar…..

    dont feel no way..america will take u to the top and drop u then. if they can do it to their own people what u think of foreigners?

  10. CEO says:

    She could have showed up and would have been given a noncustodial sentence with some community service hours and life would have been simple. She could have then do exactly what she is doing now and turn her life around. She has now complicated her life and now she is a felon because she fled.

    If she is Belizean then she should be left alone. America never sends their criminals back to Belize to stand trial. When they start to reciprocate then yes. How many have not come down there and mess up our reef and steel our natural resources and molest and murder or children and then escape back to the safety of the US?

  11. John Boy,Carson,Ca says:

    Do you know for a fact that she is a Belizean. If she is a U.S citizen, then she is an American. No matter where she was born.

  12. drose flowers says:

    YOU CAN RUN BUT YOU CAN’T HIDE.

    SHE IS NOT AS BAD AS THE STUDENT NURSE WHO MURDER A MOTHER FOR HER BABY, TO PRESENT THE BABY AS HER TO A FOOL MAN.

    MEIN!!!! UB DAH LONE BS!!!!

    YES CRIMINAL RECORD SHOULD BE PART OF UB ADMISSION

  13. Belize Police says:

    what the hell, throwing a missile is the same as throwing a bottle, or a simple stone. Before you crucify this woman better get the facts. Who knows what were the circumstances even surrounding this incident. She was now even arrested. So she is still presumed innocent. (at least under our laws she is innocent). Belizean or not this is nothing to make such a big deal from. I garauntee everyone in this world can be charged for throwing missiles. so please get real and dont waste time with this story and leave the woman to live her life.

  14. EZ GLEnn says:

    mein Misdeamenor and eh deh pan the new come on petty crime waste ah time find they child molestor weh the hide inna Belize Please from America and stop the mek people look bad fe simpleness come ON!!!!! .

  15. Simon says:

    I heard from a good friend of nadine that this a case of baby mama drama. Its seem that Nadine current boyfriend, has his ex girlfriend pregnant and doesn’t want to be with her. So the ex girlfriend made up this story

  16. Luv says:

    Simon that’s crazy bc at no point the story is fake more over if it was the news media would not have had it up and lastly nobody is pregnant so its all crap this woman is spreading around trying to blame others for her many deeds of the past.
