Pineda in Court

2/13/12 – A judge will decide next month if there is enough evidence for a Watertown man to proceed to trial in connection with the armed burglary of Martin Motors. On January 26, Nivir Edgar Marcis Damian Pineda was placed on probation for burglarizing a residence in Jefferson County. Police say a few hours before the sentencing hearing, Pineda broke a window to gain

access to the Watertown car dealership. Investigators reviewed surveillance footage from nearby businesses and saw a man matching Pineda’s height and build. Shoe prints at the scene reportedly matched the shoes he was wearing during questioning. Pineda is accused of stealing around $20 in cash, an iPod and a 22-caliber handgun. The handgun was allegedly found in the possession of a Watertown man accused of serving as lookout in the crime. Pineda is being held in the Dodge County Jail on a $10,000 cash bond.
