Missouri man pleads guilty to bank robbery, kidnapping
SPRINGFIELD (AP) — A southwestern Missouri man has admitted in court that he robbed a bank two years ago and abducted the bank's manager.
Fifty-three-year-old Timothy Polodna of Springfield pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges of bank robbery and kidnapping.
Polodna admitted that in July 2014, he stole $26,536 from a Bank of America branch in Springfield, claiming he had an explosive device. The kidnapping count related to Polodna's forcing the bank manager to walk with him to his car until he made his getaway.
Polodna was arrested two days later.
No sentencing date was immediately set.
