On 4-19-15, the Methuen Police Department responded to two separate robberies within a short distance and time frame. MPD detectives began a comprehensive investigation to identify and locate the suspect in these two incidents. The department also conducted a high profile social media campaign (including uploading video surveillance footage and photos) on all our social media outlets.
As a result of the hard work of Detective Eric Deleon and Detective Keith Frost and all our social media followers and media outlets, a suspect was arrested. As a result of the investigation, Hector Martinez (age 35) was arrested and charged with one count of armed robbery and one count of unarmed robbery.
Chief Solomon and the men and women of the Methuen Police Department would like to once again thank all our followers on social media for sharing our videos and information. We would also like to thank members of the media who shared our videos and ran stories about the incidents to inform the public.
