Two charged in connection with bank heist

A simple accusation of a crime can be stressful and very overwhelming. The behaviors of one-time friends, colleagues or neighbors may seem to change. Even the task of running day to day errands can be emotional because an alleged offender may feel the pressure of public scrutiny.

Two young men, ages 19 and 21, face criminal charges in connection with an alleged bank robbery in Raytown during late June, according to area reports. The men were apprehended on June 29, and they appeared in federal court on July 2.

Bank records allege that the two men entered the U.S. Bank branch on Gregory Blvd. during the late morning hours on June 29. According to reports, the two men initially sat next to each other in the bank, and then one of them got in line for the teller. It is speculated by bank employees that the seated man was on lookout duty.

Reports indicate that the man in line gave the teller some brown paper bags and a note. The teller pressed a silent alarm before handing over more than $2,000 in cash, according to official statements. The woman said that the man asked her to fill another bag with cash, but her station was reportedly out of money. After retrieving the money, both men left the bank.

A local police officer that was responding to the alleged crime said he saw the two men walking along the road near the scene of the robbery. When the two men were approached by the officer, they ran. One of the men was apprehended, and the other turned himself in to authorities over the weekend, according to legal officials.

Even after an individual has served his or her time, a violent crime conviction can remain on a person's permanent criminal record which can be accessed by potential landlords, employers, schools and financial institutes. They may be hesitant to work with you if you have a serious felony offense on your record. It is important for those accused of a crime to seek legal advice as soon as possible in order to look out for his or her best interests.
