WICHITA, Kan. -- A Wichita man has pleaded guilty to robbing a west Wichita bank.

The U.S. Attorney's Office said 59-year-old Craig E. Applebee robbed the Credit Union of America at 212 S. Ridge Road on May 15, 2014. He gave the teller a note demanding money. After the teller put the money in a white plastic trash bag, Applebee fled the bank.

Police used a GPS tracking device hidden in the money to find Applebee’s car. They stopped the car and arrested him in the 3800 block of West Central.

Applebee faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000. Sentencing is set for Oct. 23.
