Guatemalan found with gun stolen during burglary

Walter Boteo Ralda

A San Ignacio man who was wanted in connection with a burglary is now in double the trouble. On Monday, police conducted a search on Joseph Andrews Drive for twenty-one year old Guatemalan national, Walter Boteo Ralda. When he spotted the police vehicle, Ralda took off running into Eleventh Street, but was caught. The cops searched his bag and found a glock nine millimeter pistol with an empty magazine. The firearm is the property of Canadian businessman, Alian Langlois of Santa Elena, who reported the burglary on February twenty-fourth. Ralda was arraigned on Tuesday at the San Ignacio Magistrate’s Court and pleaded guilty to the charge of Kept Firearm Without a Gun License. He was sentenced to five years in prison.  He was additionally charged for Handling Stolen Goods and pleaded not guilty. That matter has been adjourned until August sixth, 2012.
