SYRACUSE, Utah — A 19-year-old man approached police Friday to confess to a crime in Syracuse.

Joel Martinez approached a South Ogden police officer performing a traffic stop and told him he had committed a crime at the Dairy Queen on April 15, according to a press release.

Back in April, Police officials said a suspect entered a Dairy Queen, 901 W. 1700 South, in Syracuse around 10:30 p.m., pointed a handgun at the clerk and demanded money before fleeing on foot.

After Martinez was interviewed by the Syracuse Police Department, police determined there were two other suspects. Federico Urquijo, 19, and a 17-year-old juvenile female also admitted to playing a role in the robbery.

Martinez and Urquijo were booked into the Davis County Jail on aggravated robbery charges. The juvenile female was booked into Farmington Bay Juvenile Correctional Facility on the same charge.

    Sounds like Joel is sorry about what he’s done. Hopefully the judge will take that into consideration when determining his sentence.
