Missouri Man Sentenced For Bonner Springs Bank Robbery

KANSAS CITY, KAN. – A Kansas City man was sentenced today to 65 months in federal prison for robbing a bank in Bonner Springs, U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said.

Timothy Karpovich, 39, Kansas City, Mo., pleaded guilty to one count of bank robbery. An affidavit filed in the case alleged that Karpovich robbed the KCB Bank at 13010 Commercial in Bonner Springs. He gave the teller a handwritten note that read, “This is a robbery.” After the teller complied with the demand, Karpovich took the money, and fled the bank on foot.

Police received a tip that the robber gambled regularly at Harrah’s Casino in North Kansas City, Missouri. Casino employees identified Karpovich from a bank surveillance photo. He was arrested without incident at the casino.

McAllister commended the FBI, the Bonner Springs Police Department, the Missouri Highway Patrol Gaming Division and Assistant U.S. Attorney Trent Krug for their work on the case.
