Juan Martinez Charged For Attempted ATM Burglary

A man from Wright has turned himself into authorities after being suspected of being involved in at least one attempted ATM break-in.

Eighteen-year-old Juan Martinez has been charged with burglary and conspiracy to commit burglary.

In early November, 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 that 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 bookkeeper 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 the heist was eventually scrapped, when he and his buddy realized they were taking too much time with the break-in.

Martinez is being held on $25,000 bond awaiting trial, and could face up to 10 years in prison on each charge, if convicted.
