A York County bank robber wasn't just caught on tape, it appears she posted a video to YouTube bragging about the crime, as she flashed large amounts of cash, saying, "I told my mom today was the best day of my life."

She doesn't speak, but holds handwritten notes to the camera, along with text added to the video that describes her account of the robbery.

The young woman in the video doesn't identify herself, except as "chick bank robber."

Her description of the crime matches the account given in court records

In an application for an arrest warrant, a sheriff's deputy writes about the robbery at the Cornerstone Bank in Waco last week.

Investigators went through security video, which shows "one white female approximately 20 years of age."

Hannah Sabata, 19, was arrested later for the crime.

Deputies said the suspect handed tellers a note that said, "You are being robbed! NO ALARMS OR LOCKS OR PHONES or INK BAGS! I have a loaded gun. You have 2 minutes."

The suspect was then seen driving off in a silver Pontiac Grand Am, that had been reported stolen.

On the YouTube clip, the young woman dangles car keys in front of the camera, saying she stole a "shiny" Pontiac Grand Am.

In court records, police said they found the silver car in Stromsburg. On the ground next to the car was a bracelet with the words "I [heart] Hannah."

In the video a pair of Green Day songs play, while the woman shows what appears to be a pipe, and talks about smoking a "bowl full of weed."

She fans out a stack of cash while words appear on the screen saying, "I told my mom today was the best day of my life... she just thinks I met a new boy."

The woman in the video attempts to explain why she robbed the bank. She said she was a government victim, that the government took her baby away and that the "system is a game."

Sabata faces charges of robbery and theft by unlawful taking. Bond was set at $300,000.

Her next court appearance is set for the day after Christmas.
