WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- An Oklahoma man has pleaded guilty to robbing a bank in southeast Kansas earlier this summer.

The U.S. Attorney's office says 44-year-old Thomas Hass, of Quapaw, entered the plea Monday in federal court in Wichita. He faces up to 20 years in prison at sentencing Nov. 25.

Investigators said Hass entered the American Branch in Galena on July 22 and requested a loan application. He then pulled a gun and demanded money.

The weapon turned out to be a pellet gun that shot rubber pellets.

Hass was arrested within days after surveillance photos from a nearby convenience store brought tips from the public. One caller said Hass had approached a woman saying he had recently obtained a large amount of money and wanted to take her to Las Vegas.
