BYRON TOWNSHIP, Mich. - A mother from Michigan was due in court Thursday to face bank robbery charges.

Police said 53-year-old Dee Ann Sanders of Martin is accused of robbing a Bank of America branch on June 18.

A bank teller told police the woman handed her a note demanding $2,500 for her children and grandchildren.

She walked away with just over $1,000, but police said it was one of her children who helped crack the case.

According to the FBI, Sanders' son recognized her on surveillance pictures from the robbery and called police to turn her in.

The pictures show a woman wearing a bright red T-shirt with a large American flag on the front. Sanders was arrested at the son's home in Byron Township.  Police said she confessed to the bank robbery.
