Bank Robber Facing Federal Charges

SHAWNEE, Kan. (AP) – A suburban Kansas City man faces federal charges in an Overland Park bank robbery.

The U.S. attorney’s office says 19-year-old Mamoudou M. Kaba, of Shawnee, was indicted Wednesday on one count of bank robbery and one count of brandishing a firearm during a robbery. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.

Prosecutors allege that Kaba used a Ruger 9 mm handgun in September when he robbed a U.S. Bank branch. He faces up to 25 years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000 if he is convicted of the bank robbery charge.
