Floyd McNab Gets One Year in Prison for Theft

Floyd McNab

In the Belize City Magistrate’s Court, thirty year old Floyd McNab, a car washer, was today sentenced to one year imprisonment after he pleaded guilty to twenty-two counts of theft. McNab initially pleaded not guilty, but later changed his plea to guilty and begged Magistrate Herbert Panton to impose a non-custodial sentence upon him to avoid jail time. But Magistrate Panton informed him that he cannot do so because he was charged with twenty-two counts of theft and that a fine will send across the wrong message. McNab stole a purse belonging to Monica Santos, whom he knew, and used her ATM card twenty-two times to a value of almost three thousand dollars, within a four day period between January sixteenth and January twentieth of this year. McNab claimed that he bought groceries with the card. He was caught on surveillance camera which recorded him at a grocery store on Mahogany Street and was subsequently detained and will now spend a year behind bars.
