KANSAS CITY (AP) - A Kansas City man who spent several years as a fugitive has admitted stealing nearly $39,000 during a 2007 bank holdup.

The U.S. Attorney's office says 40-year-old Marlon Jaye Larry pleaded guilty Monday to armed bank robbery and using a firearm in a violent crime.

Larry admitted entering a Bank of America branch on Kansas City's State Line Road the morning of June 27, 2007, and threatening employees at gunpoint. Tellers filled a trash bag with nearly $39,000 in cash before Larry drove off in an employee's car.

A search of a female acquaintance's home the same day turned up a handgun and trash bag containing more than $28,000. Larry was charged in 2008 but remained a fugitive until his arrest in Pennsylvania in March 2013.
