SEVERANCE, CO - Talk about adventures in babysitting!  One Colorado sitter got $500.00 on her last gig…..and a trip to the county jail.

To be fair, it wasn’t the babysitting that got 28-year-old Rachel Einspahr in trouble. It’s what she did while on the job.  She allegedly robbed a bank, in the drive-thru, with the kids in the car.

Sheriff Deputies say she delivered a note using the vacuum tube claiming a man in her SUV was threatening to harm the children if she didn’t give him money.

Crazy or not, it worked. The teller forked over the cash. But, Einspahr was caught just a few minutes later and arrested on suspicion of felony robbery.

Fortunately, the kids in her care were fine, but Einspahr has been charged with child abuse.

This is one sitter who won’t be getting any references!
