A Christian County man is arrested on a charge of bank robbery by force or violence.

Kyle Bradley Whitmore, 39, of Nixa, is being held in the Greene County Jail after being arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

According to federal court documents, Whitmore is accused of committing a robbery at a Great Southern Bank in Greene County this past Monday. If guilty, he faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

This robbery occurred days after Whitmore was involved in another incident. On Nov. 21, Whitmore was arrested and charged with one second-degree felony count of making a terrorist threat.

In court documents for this case, Nixa police were called to an apartment complex parking lot to respond to a man who appeared to be on drugs and was threatening people, stating that if anyone came close to him, he would set off an explosive.

Whitmore has a criminal record that includes a DWI charge and multiple possession charges.
