KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A northeast Kansas man whose getaway vehicle was a city bus has pleaded guilty to robbing a bank.

The U.S. Attorney’s office says 29-year-old Jamarr Dale faces up to 20 years in federal prison after pleading guilty Thursday to one count of bank robbery.

The holdup occurred Jan. 2 at a Security Bank branch in Dale’s hometown of Kansas City, Kan.

Dale admitted handing a teller a note that said, “I need $3,000 or I will start shooting.” He left after the teller gave him a drawerful of cash.

Police received a call saying the robber had boarded a city bus outside a nearby WalMart. Officers boarded the bus within minutes and arrested Dale with what was described as a large amount of cash, but no gun.
