Mo. man pleads guilty to 6 bank robberies

 

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A southwest Missouri man has pleaded guilty to a half-dozen bank robberies, including two in his home state and others in Oregon and Iowa.

The U.S. Attorney's office says 48-year-old Kenneth Dewain Parker, of Rockaway Beach, entered the pleas Monday in federal court in Jefferson City. The out-of-state prosecutions had been transferred to Missouri.

Parker's holdup spree began July 30, 2010, in Eugene, Ore., and ended about six weeks later with a robbery at a bank in Sedalia, Mo.

In between, he robbed banks in Salem and Portland, Ore.; Cedar Rapids, Iowa; and Columbia, Mo.

The amount stolen in Iowa was not disclosed. Prosecutors said the other holdups netted amounts ranging from about $2,200 at Umpqua Bank in Salem, Ore., to more than $9,100 at US Bank in Columbia.
