After working for two months, 19-year-old Ricardo Borja’s boss fired and reported him to police on charges of theft. Allegations are that on January 27, Borja dishonestly appropriated the sum of $6,000 which belongs to his boss, Ricky Perrera, 28.

Borja appeared in court unrepresented before Magistrate Carlon Mendoza on Tuesday, March 15, to answer to a single charge of theft. He pleaded not guilty to the charge and was offered bail in the sum of $8,000 plus two sureties of $4,000 each.

Perrera told us that Borja was employed with his business for two months, from December 17 to February 17 before he was fired for stealing. Perrera explained to us that Borja was going to his tenants to collect rent on his behalf without permission. Borja then took the money that he collected. This charge is for rent from one tenant. Perrera said there are other cases for which charges will be filed. He said a couple from England paid rent to Borja in the sum of $3,950, which he didn’t receive.

This is Borja’s second charge for theft. In late February he was charged before Magistrate Carlon Mendoza for theft of over $20,000 in goods from another businessman. That case is still before the court.
