This Is Why You Shouldn't Rob a Bank and Then Post a YouTube Video About How You Robbed a Bank

A Nebraska teen made the police's job a whole lot easier when she posted a YouTube video last week in which she brags about robbing a bank and stealing a Pontiac Grand Am.

Law enforcement officials in York County, Nebraska say 19-year-old Hannah Sabata, of Stromsburg, was arrested last week in connection with a robbery at Cornerstone Bank in Waco and theft of a motor vehicle in York.

Just like every smart and hardened criminal does following a crime (hence the sarcasm), Sabata posted a YouTube video aptly titled "Chick Bank Robbery" and boasted about stealing more than $6,000 from a bank and swiping an ounce of weed from someone's car -- then actually stealing a "shiny" car. To make her robbery claims credible, the teen even holds up a wad of cash, car keys, and a bag that supposedly contains marijuana.


She goes on to describe her crime spree as the "best days" of her life and says she is a "victim of the government" and plans to pay off student loans and "go on a shopping spree" with her stolen money. She won't get the chance though as York County Sheriff Dale Radcliff said "all but $30 of the stolen money" had been recovered.

Watch the video below (Warning! Music in video contains some strong language):

According to, Sabata appears to be wearing the same clothes in the video as she wore during the robbery.

Sabata was taken into custody on Wednesday and booked into York County Jail where she is charged with robbery and theft of a motor vehicle.
