Overland Park Man Sentenced For Bank Robbery
KANSAS CITY, KAN. – An Overland Park man was sentenced today to 37 months in federal prison for bank robbery, U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said.
Richard Armenta, 57, Overland Park, Kan., pleaded guilty to a Nov. 24, 2017, robbery at Capital Federal Savings Bank, 9001 E. Santa Fe in Overland Park. Armenta left the bank with cash, but investigators had two clues: a tattoo of a spider web on his left hand and a blue bicycle he rode to the bank.
On Dec. 2, Overland Park Police officers were called to a disturbance involving Armenta. They identified him from video surveillance of the bank robbery, the tattoo on his hand and a blue bicycle in the back of his pickup.
McAllister commended the Overland Park Police Department, the FBI and Assistant U.S. Attorney Kim Flannigan for their work on the case.
