Dumb and Dumber II

Rachel Einspahr, 28, went to the drive through window of a bank in Severance, Colo, where she allegedly sent a note through the pneumatic tube: “Do not sound alarm. The man in the very back wants $100s and $50s ... no dye packs or trackers ... he has gun on my kids.” The teller sent $500 back in the tube, but deputies were quickly able to catch up with Einspahr, where they discovered that there was no man in the back, and the kids weren’t hers. She was babysitting the two children, who told deputies they remembered going to the bank and then going to the park with her. Einspahr allegedly confessed to the robbery, explaining that she needed the money to pay restitution for another theft case she’s been charged in. A robbery charge and two counts of child abuse have been added to the more than 30 theft and forgery charges Einspahr was already facing.
