A 58-year-old man was charged Monday with the Saturday morning holdup of a bank in Kansas City’s Brookside neighborhood.
The robbery occurred about 9:30 a.m. Saturday at the Bank Midwest at 6249 Brookside Blvd.
Gregory Burgin of Kansas City was charged in U.S. District Court in Kansas City with bank robbery and brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence.
Two men armed with handguns robbed the bank. Witnesses saw them flee in a white Chevrolet Malibu or Impala with damage to its rear bumper, according to court documents.

A short time later, Kansas City police spotted a car matching that description parked outside a house in the 4900 block of Euclid Avenue.
Burgin was one of several people in the house. In a subsequent search, officers found clothing that matched that worn by one of the robbers, two handguns and a duffel bag similar to one used by the robbers, according to court documents.
A bag containing the approximate amount of cash taken in the robbery was found hidden in rafters in the home’s basement.
When arrested, Burgin was wearing pants stained with bleach or paint similar to those worn by one of the robbers, according to the documents.
