OGDEN — Two men have been arrested in connection with a robbery in Washington Terrace on Monday evening.
Jaylen Quinten Irwin, 20, and Dominic Andreas Martinez, 19, were booked into the Weber County Jail early Tuesday morning. Both are booked on charges of aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary, both first-degree felonies.
Irwin was also booked on one count of possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person, a second-degree felony; aggravated assault, a third-degree felony; and possession of a controlled substance with an intent to distribute, a class A misdemeanor.
Martinez was booked on one count of possession of marijuana, a class B misdemeanor.
Around 5:15 p.m. Monday, Weber County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to an address in Washington Terrace after reports of a robbery, according to charging documents. The victim told police that four men broke in and stole things shortly after he got home. A gun was involved, the victim told police.
The victim said the four left the home on foot or in a silver van. Shortly after, a South Ogden officer noticed a light blue van with two people inside who matched descriptions given to police. The officer pulled the van over and arrested Martinez and Irwin, according to charging documents.
The clothing Martinez and Irwin were wearing at the time of their arrest matched the descriptions given to police by the victim, police say. The victim told police Irwin was pointing a gun at his head during the robbery while the other three suspects stole items from the apartment, according to charging documents.
Police observed the smell of marijuana was coming from the vehicle, and marijuana was allegedly found in Martinez’s pocket, documents state.
After a search warrant was obtained by law enforcement, police searched the van and found a handgun that was reported to be stolen out of Clearfield. Police allegedly found a magazine in Irwin’s pocket that matched the handgun found, charging documents state.
Police reported they also found over 300 grams of marijuana and $722 in cash inside the van.
During interviews, Martinez allegedly told police the marijuana and handgun found in the van belonged to Irwin, something that he confirmed to police, the affidavit says.
Martinez denied any knowledge of the robbery, police say. Irwin told police he did not know the gun was stolen, and told them he purchased the gun from a friend over Snapchat, according to charging documents.
Charging documents did not state the names of the other two suspects said to be in attendance of the alleged robbery. Police are still looking for the other two suspects, and the case is active and ongoing, according to Weber County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Matt Jensen.
Both Martinez and Irwin are being held without bail at the Weber County Jail. As of Wednesday afternoon, neither have been formally charged in connection with the robbery.
An initial court hearing for either of the two has yet to be set in Ogden’s 2nd District Court.
