Bus Rider Pleads Guilty To Kansas Bank Robbery

A Kansas man who was arrested on a city bus pleaded guilty today to robbing a Topeka bank, U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said.

Clinton Adam Richards, 38, Topeka, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of bank robbery. Police responded to a robbery at U.S. Bank, 3600 SW Topeka Boulevard. A tall, bald man carrying a backpack approached a teller, demanded money and left the bank with the cash. A witness reported seeing the robber board a Topeka Metro bus at a bus stop near the bank. Police stopped the bus and arrested Richards.

Sentencing is set for Feb. 16, 2021. He could face up to 20 years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000. McAllister commended the Topeka Police Department, the FBI and Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen Hunting for their work on the case.
