Dallas man sentenced for Rockwall, Royse City break-ins

ROCKWALL – A Rockwall County jury returned guilty verdicts against a Dallas resident yesterday on third-degree enhanced charges of Burglary of a Building for his role in break-ins in Rockwall and Royse City.

Mario Terrell Martin, 24, was subsequently sentenced by 382nd District Judge Brett Hall to two maximum and concurrent sentences of ten years.

“The defendant had six prior felony convictions for theft, drug and weapons related offenses,” said Kenda Culpepper, Rockwall County Criminal District Attorney.  “We thought the maximum sentence was both appropriate and well deserved.”

Alex Imgrund, lead prosecutor in the case, said Martin acted as look-out during the early morning break-ins at the Charles Grocery Store in Royse City and the Rockwall Pawn Shop on April 30, 2010.

He added the investigation was a collaboration of the Royse City and Rockwall Police Departments and Rockwall Sheriff’s Office.

“It was an impressive effort by law enforcement,” he said.  “It is a privilege to work alongside such dedicated public servants.”
