Police: Madeira Beach man suspected in two bank robberies

A Madeira Beach man has been arrested in connection with a bank robbery earlier this month and likely will be charged with a second bank holdup, law enforcement officials said.

Michael Shane Chambers, 37, of 12971 Pelican Lane, was arrested at his home Monday afternoon on a bank robbery charge, according to St. Petersburg police.

Police said Chambers robbed the Bank of America at 5701 38th Ave. N on Sept. 7.

On the same day, police said, Chambers also is suspected of robbing another Bank of America at 10200 66th St. N in Pinellas Park.

In both cases, Chambers did not display a weapon, handed the teller a note demanding cash and fled on foot. No one was hurt. The robber was caught on surveillance video, which authorities said assisted them in identifying Chambers.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office is expected to seek charges related to the Pinellas Park robbery, authorities said.
