KANSAS CITY — A 71-year-old suburban Kansas City man is charged with bank robbery.

In charging Raymond F. Paris on Friday, the U.S. Attorney's Office alleged that he ordered two tellers at a Kansas City bank to fill large envelopes with money on Thursday.

The Kansas City Star reported that one of the tellers tripped a silent alarm while bank employees filled the envelopes with about $8,500.

Prosecutors said Paris initially refused to leave his Sugar Creek home when Kansas City police confronted him later in the day. Officers placed a cigarette on his deck and arrested Paris when he left his home to get it.
