KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Police in the Kansas City-area were kept busy after three banks were robbed within hours of each other.

The first robbery Thursday was reported at First Federal Bank in Raytown. Police say a man wearing a dark, long-sleeve construction shirt with a neon green construction-style vest and a white hard hat fled the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.

About two hours later, a different man robbed the Bank Midwest in Kansas City. He was wearing a rain jacket with a hood, and also fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.

About midafternoon, two men who said they had a weapon got away with money from a UMB bank branch in Raytown. No firearm was seen and no one was injured.
