BYRON TOWNSHIP, Mich. - It was a classic moral tug or war: Do the right thing, or turn in your mom as an alleged bank robber.

The FBI says a Michigan man chose option b, after he recognized his mother in surveillance photos of a bank robbery and called police to turn her in.

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 an easy-to-identify woman wearing a bright red T-shirt with a large American flag on the front.

FBI special agent Adam Van Deuren says her son told them where to find Sanders, and that she quickly confessed.
