KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Three men have been charged in connection to a Northland bank robbery on Thursday.
Edward L. Green, 24, Robert Lowe, 26, and Rolando Winters, 24, all of Kansas City, were charged with stealing nearly $6,000 in cash from a Bank of America in the 660 block of NW 55th Terrace in Kansas City around 10:30 a.m. on Thursday. All three men remain in federal custody.
According to court documents, Lowe and Winters got out of the Pontiac G5 and walked to the bank, while Green moved the vehicle into position to pick them up after the robbery. Green and Lowe allegedly pulled scarves up over their faces and ran into the bank, where Winters announced, “This is a robbery!” and demanded money from one of the tellers, telling her that her life depended on it. Lowe allegedly took money from another teller.
Prosecutors say that when Lowe and Winters ran out of the bank, law enforcement officers ordered them to stop. Green was arrested without incident but Lowe and Winters continued to run around the apartment complex. They ran into an undercover law enforcement truck around the corner of a building and were taken into custody.
Winters was transported to North Kansas City Hospital for treatment of injuries he received from running into the vehicle.
