Couple brings kids along for Utah bank heist, police say

Police in Utah say they've arrested a husband and wife bank robbery team that took their two children along for the illegal excursion.

An arrest report from Tooele police says the man and woman, both 27, were caught Monday soon after a Wells Fargo branch was robbed. A 5-year-old and a 2-year-old were in the back seat.

According to The Salt Lake Tribune, the couple told police they robbed the bank because they faced eviction and growing medical bills.

Employees told police the woman entered the bank and showed the teller a note demanding money.

The woman reportedly ran from the bank to the car, which was driven by the man.

Police say they searched the vehicle and found the demand note, along with hundreds of dollars in cash.
