Teenager Hannah Sabata Arrested After Bragging About Bank Robbery On YouTube
Hannah Sabata is a 19-year-old girl in Nebraska that was arrested after she posted a video on YouTube about how she stole a car and robbed a local bank on November 28th. She posted the video on the same day of her arrest. The 7-minute YouTube video shows Sabata holding several thousand dollars in cash and handwritten signs about how she pulled the caper. She even posted a video of herself smoking marijuana.
“I just stole a car and robbed a bank. Now I’m rich, I can pay off my college financial aid and tomorrow i’m going for a shopping spree. Bite me. I love GREENDAY!” stated the YouTube description.
Sabata robbed the Cornerstone bank in Waco, Nebraska. She apparently told two employees that they have two minutes to hand over a pile of cash. Bank employees did not see a weapon in her hand even though she said that she had a gun. The teller handed over the money in her drawer and then the girl ran out of the building.
Sheriff Dale Radcliff of the York County police department had announced a physical description of the female bank robber to the media and how the stolen silver Pontiac Grand Am was used as the getaway vehicle.
On the YouTube video, Sabata wrote “My new car is shiny. Of course I took the plates off already.” She also wrote “I robbed a bank with a gun, a pillow case and a note,” as well as “I told my mom today was the best day of my life. She just thinks I met a new boy.”
Sabata claimed that she was the “victim of the government” because a child was removed from her care and she was charged with neglect according to USA Today.
Sabata was wearing the same clothes that the female suspect was wearing during the robbery at the Cornerstone bank. In the video Sabata fanned herself with $6,256 in cash. Police was able to recover the money after arresting Sabata. Sabata sent a text message to a friend starting that she had over $6,000 in her possession.
