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

MLive.com says 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 June 18.

Her arraignment is scheduled Thursday in Grand Rapids federal court.

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, and she doesn’t have a phone listing.
