Man spots mother as bank robbery suspect

BYRON TOWNSHIP, Mich. – A Michigan man who recognized his mom in surveillance photos of a bank robbery called police to turn her in, according to authorities. The man reportedly tipped off police while his mother was at his home.

Authorities said 53-year-old Dee Ann Sanders of Martin, Mich., was charged Tuesday with robbing a Bank of America branch on June 18. Her arraignment is scheduled today in Grand Rapids.

A teller said the robber handed her a note demanding $2,500 for her children and grandchildren. She got $1,092. Surveillance photos showed a woman wearing a bright red T-shirt with a large American flag on the front.

FBI special agent Adam Van Deuren said Sanders confessed.
