David Lenoris Coyle, 37, was arrested Nov. 12 in Troy for robbery, first degree, in connection with the Feb. 21 armed robbery of the Bee Line store on South Brundidge Street in Troy. He was also arrested Nov. 14 for robbery, first degree, in connection with a May 16 armed robbery at the Holiday Inn Express in Troy.

Troy Police Chief Anthony Everage said Coyle was arrested Oct. 29 in Palm Beach County, Fla. for grand theft auto.

He was extradicted back to Troy from Florida for the local robberies. He is being held in the Pike County Jail on a $50,000 bond for the May robbery and a $30,000 bond for the February robbery, Everage said.

At the time of his arrest in Florida, the Troy Police Department had a warrant on Coyle for the Bee Line robbery and was wanted for questioning in the robbery at the motel, during which a black male entered the motel on U.S. 231 and demanded money from the clerk and fled the scene on foot.

Before being brought back to Troy, Coyle was held in custody of Palm Beach County authorities until their grand theft auto case was completed.
