KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) Three men have been charged in a Kansas City, Kansas, bank robbery that a federal prosecutor witnessed.
The Kansas City Star reports that 33-year-old Jonathan Dehaven, 29-year-old Brandon Wright and 37-year-old Darus Mebane are accused in the Saturday morning robbery at a UMB branch.
Court documents say two robbers tied an employee’s wrists with a zip tie before fleeing in a sport utility vehicle that a third person drove.
After witnessing the robbery from outside the bank, an assistant U.S. attorney in Kansas called 911 and chased the robbers. Police pursued the SUV until it wrecked. Investigators found money and a handgun inside the vehicle.
Dehaven’s attorney declined to comment, and Mebane’s attorney didn’t immediately respond to an email. No attorney is listed for Wright in online court records.
