Granny and Clyde arrested after bank robbery

A 70-year-old Minnesota woman told her 26-year-old driver she was just making a bank withdrawal.

The withdrawal turned out to be a robbery when 70-year-old Sandra Bathke entered the Elysian State Bank and told a bank teller she wanted money and she had a gun.

Luke Weimer, the 26-year-old Good Samaritan driver, had no idea what his passenger meant when she said bank withdrawal.

A bank official was able to follow the suspect vehicle, leading authorities to stop the car.

Bathke was taken into custody for bank robbery and Weimer for an outstanding warrant.
