JEFFERSON CITY — A 47-year-old Rockaway Beach man was indicted Tuesday by a federal grand jury in connection with bank robberies in Columbia and Sedalia.

According to the indictment, Parker stole $2,500 from the U.S. Bank at 1000 E. Broadway in Columbia on Sept. 3. The indictment also states that he stole $9,150 from Union Savings Bank in Sedalia on Sept. 21.

According to a Missourian article published the day of the robbery, a man gave a note to a U.S. Bank teller demanding money and then fled into the alley next to the Pasta Factory, where police later found his checkered blue shirt.

The suspect did not display a weapon, but he kept his hand in his pocket as if he had one, according to Columbia Police.
