Affidavit: Man admits robbing same bank he held up in 2014

July 10, 2018

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Kansas City man has been charged with robbing the same bank a second time.

The Kansas City Star reports that 39-year-old Mario Holmes was arrested at a shoe store Monday, minutes after a UMB bank teller was handed a note demanding $100, $50, $20 and $10 bills. The teller told the FBI that he pushed a silent alarm button and handed over just under $3,000.

The affidavit says Homes confessed and told investigators he picked the bank branch because he had robbed it four years ago. Federal court and prison records show Holmes was released from federal custody in March after the previous bank robbery charge was dismissed because he was found incompetent to stand trial.

Before the 2014 robbery, Holmes served 12 years for another bank holdup.
