TOOELE, Utah (AP) — A husband and wife accused of bringing their two young children to rob a Utah bank are facing federal charges.

A grand jury indicted William Joseph Parker and Michelle Joyce Parker, both 27, on three counts of bank robbery Wednesday.

Police say the couple robbed a Wells Fargo branch in Tooele on March 11 and were arrested soon after. A 5-year-old and a 2-year-old were in the back seat of their car outside the bank.

An indictment filed in U.S. District Court in Salt Lake City alleges the couple robbed additional banks on Jan. 14. and Feb. 5.

According to an arrest report, the couple told officers they robbed the bank because they faced eviction and growing medical bills.

The couple is scheduled to appear in court Thursday.
