December 4 (RIA Novosti) - An online video entitled “Chick Bank Robber” went viral in the United States Tuesday, as news spread of a 19-year-old woman from the state of Nebraska who was arrested after allegedly posting the YouTube video bragging about her recent bank heist.

"I just stole a car and robbed a bank," wrote Hannah Sabata in the video, who was arrested last week and is facing charges she stole a car and robbed the bank in the town of Waco, Nebraska on Nov. 28. That was the same day police say Sabata posted the video online detailing the crime.

The video, set to music by the American punk band Green Day, showed Sabata displaying handmade signs and captions detailing the crime.

At one point in the video, Sabata holds up a set of car keys.

“The shiny new car is a Pontiac Grand Am. Of course I already took the plates off and threw them out,” the caption said.

Later in the video Sabata displays a large stack of money, “$6,256,” the caption said.

According to local media reports, the clothes Sabata was wearing in the video and at the time of her arrest matched the clothing worn by the thief in the bank surveillance video.

An arrest affidavit filed with the York County Court indicated that someone reported receiving a text message from Sabata shortly after the robbery that said she, “had over $6,000,” local media reported.

The York County Sheriff's Department said it recovered all but $30 of the stolen cash.
