A Kansas City, Kan., police officer who heard a radio broadcast about the robbery spotted the vehicle near 74th Street and Parallel.
Officers stopped the Tahoe near 69th Street and Troup Avenue.
Randle got out of the vehicle and was carrying a purple pillow case. As he tried to walk toward a house, officers arrested him and money fell out of the bag, according to the documents.
After his arrest, Randle told investigators that he didn’t want to hurt anybody and the robbery was a “one-time thing,” according to the allegations.
