A Kansas City, Kan., man arrested for bank robbery after he boarded a city bus has pleaded guilty in the case, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said Thursday.

In his plea, Jamarr Dale, 29, admitted to one count of robbing Security Bank, 10840 Parallel Parkway in Kansas City, on Jan. 2. According to Grissom, Dale entered the bank that day, handed a teller a note saying “I need you to give me $3,000 or I’m going to start shooting,” then left with the money on foot.

He boarded a city bus in a Wal-Mart parking lot near the bank. Officers found him sitting there a short time later.

Dale faces up to 20 years in federal prison and fines of up to $250,000, Grissom said. He will be sentenced at a later date.
