A man accused of the armed robbery of hispanics is now behind bars in Pitt County.
Officials say 30-year-old Tyrone Joyner was wanted by the Pitt and Greene County Sheriff's Offices in connection with a string of violent armed robberies in hispanic communities.
The U.S. Marshal's Violent Fugitive Task Force arrested Joyner Thursday after a month-long investigation. Officials say Joyner was living at the Camelot Inn in Greenville, and that's where he was arrested.
He is charged with two counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, two counts of first degree burglary, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of discharging a firearm in an occupied dwelling. More charges are pending.
Joyner was locked up under a $300,000 secured bond.
