Kansas Man Pleads Guilty To Robbing Bank in Prairie Village
KANSAS CITY, KAN. – A Kansas man pleaded guilty Wednesday to robbing a bank in Prairie Village, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.
Tarone Hollins, 41, Kansas City, Mo., pleaded guilty to one count of bank robbery. In his plea, he admitted that on Oct. 22, 2015, he robbed the Community America Credit Union at 7620 State Line Road in Prairie Village, Kan. After surveillance of the robbery was made public, eleven callers to the Greater Kansas City Crime Stoppers identified Hollins as the robber.
Sentencing will be set for a later date. Both parties have agreed to recommend five years in federal prison. Grissom commended the Prairie Village Police Department, the FBI, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Tris Hunt for their work on the case.
