Bank robber charged in Dunedin heist

A man recently sentenced to 20 years in prison for a robbery in Pasco County has been charged with a Dunedin bank robbery that occurred in 1999. William M. Curran is accused of stealing $2,266 from the Republic Bank at 1478 Main St. in Dunedin on March 9, 1999. On Nov. 30, 1999, Curran, 40, robbed an AmSouth Bank in Port Richey. He was sentenced May 25. He was transferred by authorities to Pinellas County on Monday to face the armed robbery charge in connection with the Dunedin robbery. He is being held on $250,000 bail, though he wouldn't be released from custody even if he posted the money because of the conviction in Pasco. An affidavit in the Dunedin robbery says Curran walked into the bank and showed a teller a gun tucked in his pants. He handed the teller a bag and she filled it with the money.
