U.S. Attorney's Office, Western District of Missouri

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Tom Larson, Acting United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Kansas City, Mo., man was charged in federal court today with the armed robbery of U.S. Bank.

Terrance R. Haynes, 56, of Kansas City, was charged with one count of armed bank robbery in a criminal complaint filed in the U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Mo.

Today’s criminal complaint alleges that Haynes stole approximately $1,629 from U.S. Bank, 1 W. Armour Blvd., Kansas City, Mo., on Monday, Oct. 30, 2017.

According to an affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, Haynes approached a teller at about 3:10 p.m. and handed her a demand note that was written on the back of a U.S. Bank deposit slip. The note read, “Give me the money now.” Haynes lifted his shirt, the affidavit says, and the teller noticed he had a black handgun tucked in his waistband. She opened her teller drawer and handed him money. Haynes allegedly stated, “I want the 100’s and 50’s, hurry up.” The teller started to move slowly, the affidavit says, and Haynes stated, “I’m going to shoot you.” The teller gave him 100’s and 50’s. Haynes allegedly took the money and left the bank.

About 20 minutes later, Kansas City police officers identified Haynes, who was driving a 2007 Ford Taurus. The vehicle was pulled over and Haynes was taken into custody without incident.
Larson cautioned that the charge contained in this complaint is simply an accusation, and not evidence of guilt.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Trey Alford. It was investigated by the FBI and the Kansas City, Mo., Police Department.
