Maybe that's why - according to police in Utah - a man and a woman robbed a bank and took their two children with them.  

An arrest report from Tooele police says the couple, both 27, were arrested on Monday, shortly after a Wells Fargo branch was robbed.

Employees told police the woman entered the bank and showed the teller a note demanding money.

The woman reportedly ran from the bank to the getaway car, which was driven by the man, and had a 5-year-old and 2-year-old in the backseat.

When police caught up with the couple, they reportedly searched the vehicle and found the robbery note, along with hundreds of dollars in cash.

According to The Salt Lake Tribune, the couple told police they robbed the bank because they faced eviction and growing medical bills.

And now, probably "quality time" behind bars, too.
