Pair indicted for robbery at Price Smith's

Wednesday a grand jury handed down an indictment charging Dominic Matthew Martinez, 28, of Salt Lake, and Jennifer Tryon, 43, of Price, with the Nov. 26, 2013, armed robbery of Smith's Food and Drug in east Price.

The indictment alleges that the pair used a firearm during a crime of violence.

Martinez is charged in the final count of the indictment with possession of a firearm and ammunition following a felony conviction.

Both Martinez and Tryon are in custody of the state. However, a federal arrest warrant has been issued for both of them.

The pair could get up to 20 years in prison should they be convicted of the robbery. However, with the firearm charges added in, the couple could draw a sentence ranging from seven years to life in prison.

Since Martinez is considered a restricted person, another 10 year incarceration could also be considered if he is found guilty.

The robbery allegedly occurred around 11 a.m. on Nov. 26, 2013. Surveillance footage, along with other evidence was obtained by Price City Detectives following the incident. Martinez and Tryon were identified as suspects in early December with Tryon being taken into custody by local police on Dec. 2, 2013.

The Utah Department of Public Safety, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the U.S. Marshals Service became involved in Martinez's apprehension due to his prior convictions and the nature of the crimes. He was arrested on 3300 South and State Street in Salt Lake on Dec. 10, 2013.
