Following a three-month investigation, the Vermont State Police has identified two suspects in connection with the Feb. 13, 2021, armed robbery at Spear’s Corner Store and cited them to appear in court this week, police say.
Andrew Coyle, 29, of Ferrisburgh was cited on suspicion of assault and robbery, and aggravated assault. His fiancée, Marissa Tallman, 26, also of Ferrisburgh, was cited on a count of accessory aiding in the commission of a felony.
Through extensive investigation and multiple interviews, state police learned that Coyle entered Spear’s Corner Store at about 6:20 p.m. Feb. 13 with a BB-type gun, threatened the clerk and demanded money from the register. Police also learned that Tallman acted as the getaway driver.
Members of the Vermont State Police worked with the Chittenden County State’s Attorney’s Office on the investigation. In consultation with prosecutors, state police on Tuesday night, May 18, cited both suspects into the Criminal Division of Vermont Superior Court in Burlington to answer the above charges at 8:30 a.m. Thursday, May 20.
