LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The Louisville Metro Police Department says they have arrested the two men believed to be behind a string of 15 restaurant robberies in six weeks.

Monday afternoon, police arrived to the Denny's restaurant on Dutchman's Lane in St. Matthews for a reported robbery. Outside of the restaurant they arrested Thomas Davidson and Kevin Boyd for the crime.

According to police, Davidson and Boyd robbed many of the restaurants in broad daylight and showed a gun.

"Davidson at the Qdoba on November 15 and the Rally's on November 25 he indicated he had a weapon but he didn't show it; but aside from all of that they did show a weapon in all the holdups," said Lt. Jennifer Coe of the LMPD robbery squad.

Police say the suspects both have criminal histories and robbed restaurants along Bardstown Road, Preston Highway, and Breckenridge Lane to name a few. The motive is believed to be for drugs. Police aren't aware how Davidson and Boyd know one another.

"They both lived in the same neighborhood," said Coe, "so I don't know if there's a past history between the two aside from like I said they lived in the same neighborhood."
