Juan Carlos Martinez
Twenty-four year old Juan Carlos Martinez is on the lam tonight after escaping from the San Pedro Police station on Sunday afternoon and police on the island are seeking the public’s assistance in his recapture. Martinez was transferred to the island from the Belize Central Prison for an aggravated burglary offense, but he managed to flee the hands of the police. Police say he is dangerous and armed. Martinez was serving a ten-year prison term at the Central Prison for firearm offenses and had been taken back to the island when he escaped during an ID parade. Policee say there is reason to believe that he is still in San Pedro where they are actively seeking him. Martinez was arrested back in March of 2014.
