Clearwater man racks up charges for convenience store robberies

CLEARWATER -- Authorities have filed additional charges against a Clearwater man arrested this week on suspicion of committing an armed robbery at a convenience store Sunday.

Clearwater police said Thomas Delgado, 44, is also behind three other armed robberies that took place earlier this year. They said Delgado robbed the same 7-Eleven on Drew Street twice — in January and April — and a Hess gas station on Drew Street in April.

Delgado was arrested after he committed an armed robbery of a 7-Eleven on Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard at about 12:45 a.m. Sunday, according to police. Investigators had set up video surveillance on the store in anticipation of a robbery. Delgado was taken into custody after he left the scene in his Ford Explorer.

After he was arrested, police said they were able to connect Delgado to the three earlier crimes. He now faces four counts of armed robbery.

Delgado was being held in lieu of $200,000 bail at the Pinellas County jail.
