Father robs pizza restaurant where daughter works

DENTON, Texas (AP) - Denton police say they aren't filing charges against a clerk whose parents and husband were charged with robbing the pizza restaurant where she works.

The Denton Record-Chronicle reports police said the clerk, Stephanie Martinez, didn't know they planned to rob the Pizza Patron Friday night.

While the robbery was in progress, Martinez discovered her father was the robber when another clerk struck him, knocking him out and knocking off his wig and sunglasses. He was later apprehended after witnesses followed the getaway pickup.

Sgt. James Brett says Martinez's husband told them she didn't know about the robbery. He says he knew they were going to rob someplace but he thought it was going to be a convenience store.

Authorities charged 26-year-old Jose Miguel Martinez with aggravated robbery and he's free on $50,000 bail. Forty-1-year-old Benjamin Ramirez and 38-year-old Sonia Palacios are both charged with aggravated robbery.

Bail was set at $50,000 each, but they are being held without bail on immigration violations.
