A Nebraska woman was arrested after she posted a video on YouTube of herself bragging about robbing $6,000 (not the money shown in this file image) from a bank.

A Nebraska woman got herself arrested after she allegedly robbed a bank then posted a YouTube video of herself bragging about the crime, the Omaha World-Herald reported.

Hannah Sabata, 19, was arrested Wednesday after police said she made a YouTube video that showed her boasting about stealing a Pontiac Grand Am and robbing $6,000 from the Cornerstone Bank branch in Waco, near Lincoln. The bank was held up on Nov. 27.

In the video, “Chick Bank Robber,” Sabata holds up a series of handwritten signs accompanied by subtitles, which detail the purported crime. “…I robbed a bank with a gun, a pillow case and a note,” Sabata writes. She then holds up a wad of cash and fans herself. She’s seen smoking a pipe and holding up a baggie of what she claims is marijuana. Sabata also says she is a “victim of the government” because the state “stole” her child.

Court documents say Sabata has a history of mental health problems and refused to take prescription medication during pregnancy to protect her baby’s health, the World-Herald reported.

Sabata says in the video she plans to use the money to pay off student loans and “go on a shopping spree.”
