A 19-year-old US woman has been arrested after posting a video in which she boasted of stealing a car and robbing a bank.

Hannah Sabata, 19, of Stromsburg, Nebraska, is seen in the video claiming she’s having the “best day of her life,” because she stole a Pontiac Grand Am and robbed a bank of more than $6,000.

In the footage she brandishes car keys, bragging “my new car is shiny. Of course I took the plates off already.” She holds up a sign that boasts “then I robbed a bank with a gun, a pillow case and a note,” and then waves and fans herself with a large handful of money.

Sabata also claims in the video that she is a “victim of the government” because the state took custody of her baby. She says she plans to pay off student loans and “go on a shopping spree.”

According to a report on leading Nebraska news site, the York News Times, court documents state that “Sabata has a history of mental health problems and refused to take prescribed medication during pregnacy to protect her baby's health”.

Sabata has been taken into custody on charges that she robbed a Waco bank after stealing a car in York.

A photo taken as she is escorted by Sheriff’s Officers from her home shows her wearing a similar outfit to the one seen in the video and allegedly worn by the female bank robber captured on the bank’s surveillance cameras.
