Washington, Sep 26 (ANI): When a mum in the US robbed a bank, she made a special request of not calling the police for 15 minutes-as she had to pick her kids from school.

Erica Anderson went into an Umpqua Bank branch in Grants Pass, Ore., and handed the teller a note demanding cash.

"The note also instructed the teller to wait 15 minutes before calling law enforcement or else two kids wouldn't make it home from school," People magazine quoted Detective Sgt. Dennis Ward.

Anderson fled the bank with 1,300 dollar with Joshua K. Deeter Tseu driving the getaway car, said Ward.

The officers who responded within minutes were baffled and concerned by the note fearing children were in danger.

Instead, said Ward, "She didn't want to be late picking up her kids."

Anderson was arrested in her driveway, not long after picking up her kids at a local elementary school.

Anderson reportedly appeared concerned about what might happen to her daughters following her arrest.

"But I guess if she was really all that concerned about their welfare, she probably wouldn't be committing bank robbery.

"We average between three and five bank robberies a year. But I don't think I've ever heard of anything quite like this," added Ward. (ANI)
