(Scroll down for video) A babysitter was arrested after using children to help her rob a bank.

28-year-old Rachel Einspahr of Colorado, is accused of taking the children she was babysitting to rob a bank.

The Weld County Sheriff's Office said that Einspahr went to the bank's drive-thru in Severance, with the two children on Friday.

She then sent a note through the vacuum tube, saying that there was a man in the car who wanted money and he threatened to hurt her children.

The note read: “Do not sound the alarm. The man in the very back wants $100s and $50s. No dye packs or trackers. He has gun on my kids,” according to court documents.

The teller at the Colorado East Bank & Trust, who assumed that the kids’ life were in danger, handed Einspahr $500 and she drove off.

Officers soon caught up with Einspahr, and she was arrested. Sheriff's office spokesperson Matt Turner said that there was a man in the car with them.

Einspahr allegedly admitted to the bank robbery and told police she needed the money to pay restitution in another theft case.
