A teller who was found bound to a chair at a suburban Kansas City bank is among four people charged with stealing money from the facility.

Twenty-year-old Michael Grace told police Wednesday he had been abducted from outside his apartment complex that morning and forced to drive to the U.S. Bank branch in Overland Park where he worked. Grace said his abductor forced him to open the bank and then robbed it.

A federal complaint filed Friday says Grace, 18-year-old Brenden L. Connors, 20-year-old David Batson and 28-year-old Jacob McWhirt admitted the robbery was staged. All are from Overland Park.

The four are charged with theft/embezzlement/misapplication by a bank officer and are scheduled for a court hearing Friday afternoon.
