Man accused of wearing wig to rob banks faces child porn charges

LARGO — A man arrested this week in connection with two recent bank robberies now also faces several child pornography charges.

Daniel Christopher Williams, 29, admitted to detectives that he kept child pornography inside his home at 1017 16th Ave. NW, an arrest affidavit states. Williams told Largo police he acquired the images from a roommate in January, and had kept them with the idea of later destroying them.

Williams was arrested Sunday by Belleair police, accused of robbing the Fifth Third Bank at 601 Indian Rocks Road in Belleair June 26. Clearwater police said he was also the wig-wearing robber who stole an undisclosed amount of money from a 1st United Bank at 1465 S Fort Harrison Ave. in Clearwater on May 24.

Along with two strong arm robbery charges, Williams now also faces 10 counts of child pornography possession.

Williams remained at the Pinellas County jail Thursday in lieu of $205,000 bail.
