Pinellas Sheriff Charges Transient with Robbing Dunedin Bank
The accused man had already been charged with two Clearwater bank robberies.
DUNEDIN – Detectives assigned to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s robbery/homicide unit on Wednesday (Aug. 19) charged a man they say is linked to a Dunedin bank robbery.
Arrested and charged with one count of robbery with an implied weapon was Clinton Archer Wells, 31. Wells is a transient, deputies said. Wells had been arrested Tuesday (Aug. 18) by the Clearwater Police Department and charged with two bank robberies in their jurisdiction. Pinellas deputies added the Dunedin robbery charge on Wednesday (Aug. 19).
According to deputies, the suspect entered the Valley National Bank, 1352 Main St.in Dunedin, around 1:46 p.m. Friday (Aug. 14). As he walked toward the counter, he said, “This is a robbery,” implied he had a gun and demanded money from the teller. The suspect then took an undisclosed amount of money and fled on foot.
The investigation is continuing.
