KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - An Iowa man has pleaded guilty to his part in a Missouri bank robbery after which the suspects left their loot in a tree.

Twenty-seven-year-old Torrence Joseph O’Neill, of Mount Pleasant, Iowa, pleaded guilty Tuesday in Kansas City to one count of bank robbery.

The St. Joseph News-Press reports (https://bit.ly/1uEhDBA ) O’Neill and two other Iowa men were accused of robbing the Citizens Bank and Trust in Burlington Junction in March.

A witness who followed the three men helped Nodaway County authorities capture them. A few days later, authorities found the more than $12,000 taken from the bank hidden in a tree in southern Iowa.

The other suspects, Donald Kester Jr, of Mount Pleasant, and Travis Davis, of Fort Dodge, have change of plea hearings scheduled for next week.
