BYRON TOWNSHIP, Mich. The FBI says a Michigan man who recognized his mom in surveillance photos of a bank robbery called police to turn her in.

MLive.com reports the man told police his mother was at his home in Kent County's Byron Township.

Authorities say 53-year-old Dee Ann Sanders of Martin was charged Tuesday with robbing a Bank of America branch on June 18.

Her arraignment is scheduled Thursday in Grand Rapids.

A teller says the robber handed her a note demanding $2,500 for her children and grandchildren. She got $1,092.

Surveillance photos show a woman wearing a bright red T-shirt with a large American flag on the front.

FBI special agent Adam Van Deuren says Sanders confessed.

It's unknown if she has a lawyer yet. She doesn't have a phone listing.
