Homeowner Shoots, Kills Intruder

A Springville man Thursday shot and killed an intruder who police say woke up a sleeping couple in their bedroom and demanded they take him to an ATM for cash.

The intruder was identified as Armando Martinez Jr., 31, of Provo. Police said Martinez first took the time to make a snack and change his clothes before waking and threatening the homeowners.

Officers were called to 763 S. 475 East about 2:50 a.m. Upon arrival, they found Martinez dead in the bedroom of the home, said Springville Police Lt. Dave Caron.

Martinez had walked through the neighborhood, checking as many as 20 homes for unlocked doors, Caron said. He entered the house where the shooting occurred through a sliding back door. The door was locked with a child lock, but Martinez apparently disabled it by pulling hard on the door.

Once inside the home, police said, Martinez found some clothes that had been left folded on the couch. He changed out of his wet clothes and into the homeowner’s clothing. He also made himself a tortilla and ham wrap in the kitchen.

“He ate most of it and put what he didn’t eat back in the fridge,” Caron said. “From there, he went upstairs and started the whole thing.”-[source]
