A 29-year-old man is facing criminal charges for allegedly robbing a Kansas City, Kan., bank Thursday, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.

In an affidavit filed in U.S. District Court, Jamarr R. Dale, of Kansas City, Kan., is accused of walking into Security Bank, 10840 Parallel Parkway, and handing a teller a note that read “I need $3,000 or I will start shooting,” Grissom said.

The teller emptied a drawer of cash for the robber, who stuffed the bills into his coat and ran.

Police arrested Dale as he sat inside the city bus he boarded following the alleged robbery, Grissom said.

If convicted of bank robbery, Dale faces up to 20 years in federal prison and a maximum fine of $250,000.
