Kansas Man Indicted for Armed Bank Robbery of Mound City Bank

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – An Ottawa, Kansas, man was indicted by a federal grand jury today for the armed robbery of a Mound City, Mo., bank.

Marvin J. McWhorter III, 41, was charged in a two-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Kansas City, Mo. McWhorter is charged with one count of bank robbery and one count of using, carrying, and brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence.

Today’s indictment alleges that McWhorter, brandishing a firearm, stole $4,445 from Citizens Bank & Trust, 904 State Street in Mound City, on Dec. 21, 2022.

The charges contained in this indictment are simply accusations, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charges must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.

This case is being prosecuted by Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephanie C. Bradshaw. It was investigated by the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the Holt County, Mo., Sheriff’s Department, the Andrew County, Mo., Sheriff’s Department, the Mound City, Mo., Police Department, and the FBI.
