      Mich. man turns in mom for robbing bank


      The FBI says a Michigan man who recognized his mother in surveillance photos of a bank robbery called police to turn her in.


      The man told police his mother was at his home in Kent County's Byron Township.


      Authorities say 53-year-old Dee Ann Sanders of Martin was charged Tuesday with robbing a Bank of America branch on June 18.


      Her arraignment is scheduled Thursday in Grand Rapids.


      A teller says the robber handed her a note demanding $2,500 for her children and grandchildren. She got $1,092.


      Surveillance photos show a woman wearing a bright red T-shirt with a large American flag on the front.


      FBI special agent Adam Van Deuren says Sanders confessed.


      It's unknown if she has a lawyer yet. She doesn't have a phone listing.
