Hospital arrests

By Ana Breton

Two people were arrested at the University Hospital earlier this month and booked into jail on outstanding warrants that totaled more than $100,000.

Police officers were called to the emergency room at the hospital Aug. 17 after they received an anonymous tip that an individual about to be released from the hospital had outstanding warrants.

The suspected woman was arrested and taken into custody on charges not disclosed in the police report totaling $105,475.

The woman was released from the hospital and booked into the Salt Lake County Metro Jail.

A man was arrested on several outstanding warrants totaling more than $9,000 after someone at the U Hospital complained that the man was acting inappropriately toward children.

Robert Martinez was refilling prescription medication when several patrons reported that he was being “overly friendly” toward children in the area, according to a police report.

Police checked his identification and called dispatch officers, who found that Martinez had five outstanding warrants including charges for retail theft, interfering with an officer and failure to appear in court.

Martinez was taken into custody and booked into the Salt Lake County Metro Jail.
