Largo man arrested in bank robbery

A photo in the St. Petersburg Times led to the arrest Tuesday of a Largo man accused by the Pinellas County Sheriff's Department of robbing a Largo bank. Frank Gavagahan, 270 Fifth Ave. NE is charged with robbing the SunBank at 3705 East Bay Drive on May 20. A sheriff's spokeswoman said Gavagahan is also a suspect in a Clearwater bank robbery last month.

The Largo Police Department and the FBI assisted in the arrest after a resident recognized Gavagahan's photo, which had been taken by a bank surveillance camera at the time of the robbery.

The spokeswoman said Gavagahan was on probation at the time of his arrest for previously robbing the same bank in 1985.
