Bank robbery arrest in Palm Harbor

PALM HARBOR — A 29-year-old Palm Harbor man was arrested Friday on charges of robbing a Bank of America in Palm Harbor on Wednesday morning. Pinellas County sheriff's detectives identified the suspect as Cody Waugh of 2691 Levy Court, Palm Harbor. He is charged with robbery. Detectives said that upon questioning, he admitted to the robbery and stated he used some of the stolen money to catch up on his rent, pay for furniture rental, and to buy things for himself and his wife. The robbery happened about 10:20 a.m. Wednesday at a Bank of America at 4000 Lake St. George Drive. Detectives say the robber handed a teller a note demanding cash. He implied he had a gun. After taking cash, the robber ran north on Lake St. George Drive. On Friday, detectives got a call from someone who said they recognized the robber a photo they had seen in media reports. That tip led them to Waugh.
