A Colorado woman is accused of taking two children she was babysitting to a bank robbery.
The Weld County Sheriff's Office says 28-year-old Rachel Einspahr went through the drive through 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. Investigators say the teller at the Colorado East Bank & Trust in Severance gave her $500.
Sheriff's office spokesman Matt Turner says there wasn't a man in the car with them.
"Investigators discovered that Einspahr was a local babysitter; the two children she was employed to babysit were in the vehicle with her at the time of the incident," the Weld County Sheriff's office said in a news release.
Einspahr was arrested on suspicion of robbery and child abuse.
