A woman, who worked as a babysitter in Colorado has been accused of taking two children she babysat to a bank robbery. The 28-year-old Rachel Einspahr went through the drive of a bank in Severance with the two children on Friday. She allegedly sent a note through the vacuum tube saying that there was a man in her car who wanted money and was threatening to hurt her children, Weld County Sheriff's Office say.
The note said, 'Do not sound alarm, the man in the very back wants $100s and $50s, no dye packs or trackers, he has gun on my kids,' according to court documents released on Monday, reported CBS.
Investigators say the Teller at the Colorado East Bank & Trust in Severance gave her $500. 'The bank Teller, under the assumption that lives were in danger, gave her $500,' the police statement said.
Sheriff's office spokesman, Matt Turner says there wasn't a man in the car with them. Einspahr was being held in jail on Monday but hasn't been formally charged. It's not clear if she has a lawyer yet.
Einspahr admitted to the bank robbery and told police she needed the money to pay restitution in another theft case in which she has around 30 charges.
