Daniel Christopher Williams
BELLEAIR – Police arrested a Largo man July 7 in connection with two bank robberies.

Daniel Christopher Williams, 29, was charged with two counts of strong-armed robbery. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail on $40,000 bond.

Belleair Police Chief Tom Edwards said that a man disguised in dreadlocks and a cap on his head entered the Third Fifth Bank at 601 Indian Rocks Road June 26 and presented a note to a clerk and got cash. One of the bank clerks seems to think that the subject might have been in the bank five or six days earlier, Edwards said.

Belleair police obtained a picture of the subject without the disguise from his earlier appearance. Through showing his picture around, police determined that he lived near Clearwater-Largo Road.

They also found a couple of locations where the suspect buys items, such as food and snacks.

Police knew he lived in the area and after several days of surveillance, he had not returned to the store. Police started talking to people in the neighborhood and able to determine where he lived and who he was.

Police found out the suspect committed a bank robbery at First United Bank, 1465 South Fort Harrison Ave. a month earlier. In that robbery, he was dressed as a female. Police were able to call Clearwater detectives, and they charged the suspect in that case, Edwards said.

Police made contact with Williams and asked him to come talk to officers at the station, where he was arrested.
