Man sentenced to 13 and a half years for home burglary

His accomplices were previously convicted by a Monagas court.

Given the compelling evidence presented by the Public Ministry (MP), Pedro Alejandro Leonett Morales was sentenced to 13 years and six months in prison for robbery of a home in Punta de Mata, Monagas state.

In this case, Alexander Rafael Martínez and Darwin José Milano were also previously sentenced to six years and eight months in prison, after admitting their participation in the events.

Such a situation occurred on August 17, 2021 in the Villavicencio sector; located in Punta de Mata, in the Ezequiel Zamora municipality of Monagas state.

According to the investigation, during the early morning of the aforementioned date the victim was sleeping inside his home and heard noises outside his home. He took a machete, went out to investigate the surroundings and saw a sheet of zinc detached from the roof of one of his neighbors. Suddenly, he was surprised by Leonett Morales, Martínez and Milano, who were carrying firearms and threatened to shoot him if he did not drop the machete.

After subduing the man, they hit him on the back of the head; stomach and mouth on several occasions before tying his hands with a rope and leaving him lying in the yard of his home. Given the noise caused, a local resident came out with a flashlight to find out what was happening in the surroundings, but he was unable to illuminate the three perpetrators.

The three men took a quintal of roasted and ground coffee from the place; a seven-inch grinder; a saw, a machete; a cell phone, a tester and a drill.

After he was able to free himself from his bonds, the victim approached the nearest Bolivarian National Guard Command to report the incident and provide the details of his attackers; because he could recognize them.

In this sense, a military commission traveled to the Ilapeca sector in the same municipality; where Martínez was apprehended in flagrante delicto to be left at the disposal of the Public Ministry.

Subsequently, a group of GNB officials traveled to the 1 de Mayo sector; where they found Leonett Morales and Milano were located and arrested to begin the respective criminal process, in which the 7th Trial Court of the entity handed down the sentence against the accused, setting his confinement in the Center for the Formation of the New Man "Nelson Mandela ”.
