KANSAS CITY, KS (AP) -

A Kansas City, MO man has admitted to passing a teller a cellphone with a note demanding money on the screen while robbing an Overland Park bank.

Ryan Michael Cothern, 41, pleaded guilty Wednesday to committing the October 2017 robbery at US Bank.

Prosecutors say Cothern handed a teller his cellphone with a message that read, "Put the 100s, 50s and 20s in the bag." When the teller hesitated, Cothern said, "Don't do anything you shouldn't do."

The teller put cash and a GPS monitoring device in the bag before pulling the alarm.

The sentencing hasn't been set. Cothern faces up to 20 years and a fine up to $250,000.
