Vicente Nunez Dominguez has been formally charged with two counts of armed robbery with a deadly weapon, which are class two felonies.
The charges stem from two separate robberies that happened within minutes of each other early Monday morning.
Shortly after midnight the suspect robbed the Ramada Inn on 32nd street in Yuma, before robbing the Chevron gas station on the corner of Sixteenth Street and Avenue B.
While no weapon was found when Dominguez was arrested by authorities only hours after the robberies occurred, the victims at both businesses claim he displayed a firearm before demanding cash.
While his bond was originally set at $550,000, state prosecutor William Katz requested and was granted the request to raise his bond to one million dollars.
“We are requesting that bond be set at one million dollars,” said Katz. Given that the two cases have been combined, his bond should be set as though the cases were stacked, so we are requesting that bond be set at one million dollars.”
