Former Cayman Islands Humane Society employee Ricky Johnny Alvarado, who is accused of four charges of burglary at the animal shelter’s property on North Sound Road, pleaded not guilty in Grand Court Friday.
The first two offenses happened in July of this year. Mr. Alvarado is accused of taking $2,100 from the Humane Society’s cash drawer on July 20. He is also accused of a similar offense four days later, on July 24, when he allegedly took money from a donation jar.
The defendant was arrested in connection with those charges, and he also stands accused of a pair of offenses later in the same year. Mr. Alvarado is accused of taking $25 from the Humane Society donation jar on Sept. 10, and then he allegedly took $57 from the jar again on Sept. 18.
Mr. Alvarado pleaded not guilty to each of those charges on Friday.
He will next appear in court on Nov. 15. A Grand Court trial date has been set for Jan. 21 next year.
