36-year-old Robert Lee Davis of Meridian was arrested Tuesday afternoon on a capias warrant for armed robbery and attempted armed robbery. The MPD says Davis was initially arrested April 29.
The charges stem from incidents in April 2009. Davis is accused of robbing or attempting to rob two cab drivers on two separate occasions, April 22 and April 23. Officials say he called for a cab and then robbed the drivers.
His bond was set at $50,000 per charge.
The police department said, at this time, it has no reason or evidence to indicate that Davis is connected to recent robberies in Meridian.
