Juan Martinez Admits To Attempted ATM Burglary

Casper Police Dept.

A man from Wright now admits his involvement in an attempted ATM break-in.

Eighteen-year old Juan Martinez has pleaded guilty to one charge of burglary.

In November 2012, investigators were looking into an unsuccessful break-in attempt, at an ATM in the Sunrise Shopping Center.

Police determined that the method used was similar to one that occurred in Campbell County, where Martinez was named as a suspect.

In January, officers executed a search warrant at a house where Martinez and a friend were visiting.

During the search, Martinez attempted to hide a notebook and police confiscated it.

When interviewed, he admitted he was a book-keeper for his friend in terms of who owed money for drug purchases.

At first, Martinez denied involvement in the ATM burglary, then claimed he had been threatened if he didn’t help.

He eventually admitted his part in the crime, but said the heist was eventually scrapped, when he and his alleged accomplice realized they were taking too much time with the break-in.

As part of a plea deal, prosecutors will seek no more than a five-to-eight year prison sentence, which they say will probably run concurrent with any sentence Martinez receives out of Campbell County, on a similar case.
