I would love to read the previous arrest record of Dominguez. Great job SPD. It's a shame your hard work will probably find this guy back in town in no time.

Great work SPD! Hopefully, more arrests will follow since he probably did not act alone.

Definitely NOT the face of a guy who cares about being arrested. Right Troy, he looks like he'll be back. Some of the crimes in our 'hood are of opportunity so hey, residents! Lock your cars AND your house doors.
