Every student loves when their parents check them out of school early. But to rob a bank?

Tawander Simmons was arrested last Friday in Atlanta, GA along with three other teenagers on charges of robbing a Wells Fargo bank and leading police on a high speed chase.

According to WGCL, the 35 year-old woman of Stone Mountain checked her 17 year-old son, Benny Brice and two other boys, out of Stephenson High School early on Friday morning. The four then robbed a Wells Fargo bank in Lilburn, GA, 20 miles outside Atlanta.

According to investigators, Simmons had a gun when she approached a bank teller and demanded money. Bank surveillance cameras snapped pictures of her and the boys as the robbery took place. One of the teenage boys entered the bank with his hands in his pocket while the other wielded a gun. The three boys then ran to an awaiting car and they were later chased by Lilburn police.

The four individuals crashed into a railroad track, where police arrested Simmons, her son, and 18 year-old Glenn Broom and 17 year-old David Rollins.

What do you think this mother was thinking? Why would she put her children in harm’s way?

    1st A photo of her scares me this must be the mugshot.
    2nd: This is just idiotic. period.

    3rd: Desperate times calls for desperate measures.
    She planned this robbery very poorly ( if even that). Who just walks in robs the bank and not keep an eye out on who might call or press a panic button to the police department?Or cameras at that. Didn’t she learn anything from the movie Inside Man?

    ok the kids were dumb as hell to go along with this..17 n 18 i think they should know a dumb plan when they hear it…
    with that said, i really hope the kids don’t get in serious trouble for this, like hopefully community service or something because the real problem is that mother, she took parental supervision to something else
