PHILADELPHIA – Richard Boyle, 57, of Doylestown, PA was arrested today by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. On April 19, 2017, a federal grand jury returned an indictment charging Boyle with 11 counts of bank robbery, 10 counts of using or carrying a firearm during the commission of those bank robberies, and 10 counts of money laundering. Boyle stole a total of $495,686 in U.S. currency during the commission of the 11 bank robberies, which occurred in Montgomery and Bucks counties between 2012 and 2016.
