LILBURN, Ga. (AP) - Three teenagers are facing armed robbery charges after the mother of one of the boys allegedly checked them
out of school so they could help her rob a bank.

Authorities say 35-year-old Tawander Simmons of Stone Mountain
checked out her son, 17-year-old Benny Brice and two other boys from Stephenson High School on Friday morning. Police say the four
then robbed a Wells Fargo in Lilburn.

According to authorities, three suspects armed with at least one handgun entered the bank at around 9 a.m. and took cash. They ran
outside to an awaiting car and the remaining suspect and were soon
chased by Lilburn police. The alleged getaway vehicle crashed into
a railroad track and police arrested Simmons, her son and 18-year-old Glenn Broom and 17-year-old David Rollins. All are
charged with armed robbery.
