A Colorado baby sitter is accused of using two children she was watching to help her rob a bank — a heist allegedly planned to help her pay back money stolen from her employers.
The Weld County Sheriff's Office says 28-year-old Rachel Einspahr went to the bank's drive-up window Friday and sent a note to the teller saying there was a man in the back of her SUV who wanted money and was threatening to hurt the children. Investigators say the teller gave her $500.
The Greeley Tribune (http://(link tracking not allowed)/1rRxhQm ) reports that an arrest affidavit says she wanted to rob the bank to pay back $15,000 under a possible plea agreement in the previous theft cases. Lawyers who have represented her didn't return calls seeking comment.
