BYRON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (TheBlaze/AP) — The FBI says a Michigan man who recognized his mother in surveillance photos of a bank robbery called police to turn her in.
MLive.com reports the even man told police that his mother was at his home in Kent County’s Byron Township, and they could come and apprehend her there.
Soon after, 53-year-old Dee Ann Sanders of Martin was charged Tuesday with robbing a Bank of America branch on June 18, authorities say.
A bank teller claims the woman was in the bank for several minutes before the robbery, before handing her a note demanding $2,500 for her children and grandchildren and implying that she had a weapon.
She got away with $1,092, and no injuries were reported.
Surveillance photos show a woman wearing a bright red T-shirt with a large American flag on the front, and the FBI says Sanders confessed to the crime.
“Sanders further stated that she was stressed about problems with her husband, causing her to have crack-cocaine addiction-related urges,” FBI special agent Adam Van Deuren said.
It’s unknown if Sanders has a lawyer yet. She doesn’t have a phone listing.
Her arraignment is scheduled Thursday in Grand Rapids.
