Enrique Martinez and Sons employee turns himself in

Nathan Pratt

The Enrique Martinez and Sons employee who went M.I.A. with a customer’s order as well as items stolen from the company vehicle has turned himself in. Forty-three year old Nathan Pratt was to take copper tubing and a disconnect switch valued at four hundred and fifty dollars to the Caye Caulker Water Taxi Terminal on December nineteenth. But his supervisor was later informed that the order was not delivered. The following morning, the delivery truck was found parked on the compound with the radio, amplifier, speakers and tools missing. Pratt says he received a call from his brother after the report made the news and he quickly turned himself in to police. He appeared before Magistrate Dale Cayetano today and pleaded guilty to the charge of Theft. Pratt told the Magistrate that while he did not agree with the list of stolen items, he admits that he stole from his boss and said it’s because he is a drug addict. He claims that he was on his way to rehab when his brother called about the news report. Magistrate Cayetano sentenced him to three years in prison during which he is to enroll in the six-month Drug Rehabilitation Program at the Belize Central Prison.

    I admire that he is not lying and denying like most other crooks. Maybe he will be resurrected in rehab. There’s always hope.

    Now this is a real man, somebody that takes responsibility for his actions. I hope he gets help in rehab.
