KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Two more Iowa men pleaded guilty to robbing a small northwest Missouri bank after which the money was left in a tree.

The St. Joseph News-Press reports 28-year-old Travis Davis, of Fort Dodge, Iowa, pleaded guilty Thursday to bank robbery for his role in the March 21st theft at Citizens Bank & Trust in Burlington Junction.

Court records show 27-year-old Donald Kestner Jr., also of Mount Pleasant, Iowa, pleaded guilty Tuesday to bank robbery and using a firearm during a crime.

In October, 27-year-old Torrence O'Neill, also of Mount Pleasant, pleaded guilty to bank robbery.

A witness saw the men leave the bank and followed them until authorities arrested them. A few days later, more than $12,000 taken from the bank was found in a tree in southern Iowa.
