Thursday, February 2, 2012
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Kansas man has admitted holding up a western Missouri bank where he once worked as a security guard.
The U.S. Attorney’s office says 38-year-old Daniel Bryant Hill pleaded guilty Wednesday to robbing a Commerce Bank branch in the Kansas City suburb of Grandview.
Prosecutors said Hill, of Kansas City, Kan., admitted entering the bank on Nov. 18, 2011, and handing a teller a note demanding money. He fled with about $4,400.
He was arrested the same day and told investigators he chose the bank because he was familiar with it, having worked there as a guard in 2005.
Hill also admitted robbing a branch of U.S. Bank in Kansas City, Mo., in September 2011.
