KANSAS CITY — A 71-year-old man has pleaded guilty to holding up a Kansas City bank.

The U.S. Attorney's office said Raymond Paris, of Sugar Creek, faces a maximum sentence of 20 years following his plea Tuesday in federal court.

Prosecutors said Paris approached tellers at a branch of Metcalf Bank on July 5, pulled a nylon stocking over his face and told them to fill two envelopes with money. The tellers activated a silent alarm before handing Paris the envelopes containing nearly $8,500 in cash.

Kansas City police found Paris the same day at his home in the small suburb. He was arrested when he came outside to get a cigarette the officers had placed on his deck.

Paris told police he had a BB gun when he committed the holdup.
