A known fugitive with an extensive and violent criminal history has been identified as the gunman who allegedly robbed the Smith's Food & Drug in Price on Nov. 26.

According to a press release issued by Capt. Bill Barnes on Thanksgiving Day, Domonic Mathew Martinez, also known as "Cancerous" or "Canceris is reportedly the individual who robbed the grocery and drug store on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old man has been living in Price, and is wanted for aggravated armed robbery in connection with the incident which occurred at approximately 11:45 a.m.

After getting away with an unreported amount of cash and/or merchandise, the suspect fled.

As police converged on the Castle Rock Square and Smith's, only minutes after dispatch reported the robbery, their investigation began.

When the officers searched the grocery and its surrounding areas, city Officer David Wilkinson discovered and obtained a piece of crucial forensic evidence. The item was secured and delivered to the Utah State Crime Lab on Nov. 27.

The next morning, state forensic scientists were able to identify Martinez, allowing the Price police to begin their search for the gunman.

According to Capt. Barnes, Martinez is a known fugitive who is facing several other criminal matters in both Carbon County and throughout Utah.

"Our suspect is a career criminal, has an extensive violent history and should be considered armed and dangerous," he continued.

The Price Police can be reached via phone at 636-3190 or 650-6679.
