A fingerprint left behind at a crime scene led detectives to a pair of convicted felons Friday afternoon in Seminole.
Nathan Blisard and Meaghan Renee Zimmer are facing a variety of charges stemming from a string of recent bank robberies in Pinellas County.
Both were booked into the Pinellas County Jail just after 2 p.m.
Bond for Blisard, 29, is $170,000. Zimmer, 23, is being held without bond because she was already on drug offender probation.
According to a Pinellas County Sheriff's Office report a fingerprint belonging to Blisard was recovered from the Wells Fargo Bank at 13099 Park Blvd. in Seminole. On Wednesday a white male entered the location just before closing time.
He handed a teller a note demanding cash and implied he had a gun but one was not seen. PCSO Crime Scene units were dispatched to the bank and while processing the scene discovered Blisard's print.
Detectives conducting a follow-up investigation found that Blisard was living in the Seminole area with Zimmer. Strategic Enforcement Section deputies performed a traffic stop on Blisard at the intersection of Starkey Rd. and 76th Ave. North.
Blisard was driving a vehicle witnesses reported seeing leaving the crime scene.
Zimmer was located at a nearby residence and taken into custody. Investigators say the female suspect admitted to driving the get-away vehicle during Wednesday's robbery in Largo.
Additional charges may be filed against the couple as the investigation continues. Both suspects have extensive arrest records in Pinellas County and both have served time in state prison.
